We start off in Nagano. After picking you up in one of our luxurious private vehicles, we will drive you through the three destinations of your choice.

Nagano’s Zenkoji Temple is one of the most important and popular temples in Japan. It was founded in the 7th century and stores the first Buddhist statue ever to be brought into Japan when Buddhism was first introduced in the 6th century. The original statue is hidden while a copy of it is shown to the public every six years for a few weeks.

Option 02: Jigokudani snow monkey (required a long walk to reach the onsen)
Jigokudani Snow Monkey Private Package Tour

The Jigokudani Monkey Park offers visitors the unique experience of seeing wild monkeys bathing in a natural hot spring. The park is inhabited by Japanese Macaques, which are also known as Snow Monkeys. It is located in the monkey’s natural habitat, in the forests of the Jigokudani valley in Yamanouchi, not far from the onsen towns of Shibu and Yudanaka.

Option 03: Tamamura Honten

Tamamura Honten Jigokudani Snow Monkey Private Package Tour

Tamamura Honten started brewing Shiga Kogen Beer, like several other breweries such as Kiuchi Brewery, as an offshoot from a sake brewery. In 2004, Tamamura Honten applied for a license and started brewing in September of the same year. Unlike other breweries however, Shiga Kogen Beer receives 20% of its hops from the local area, produced by Tamamura Honten.

 

Option 04: Kaede no Yu

Kaede no Yu Jigokudani Snow Monkey Private Package Tour

This is a day trip bathing facility right next to Yudanaka Station, and the pure Japanese style building is built on the train platform. It is a popular spot to enjoy natural hot spring water in easy reach of the station, with entry at a pleasingly low cost. There are indoor and open-air rotemburo baths, and special baths that switch between male and female use every month. There is also a rest spot where one can see trains pulling in to the platform.

The sounds of the bell resounds all throughout town.
