Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park

Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park

The Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park (altitude 850 meters) is located in the Valley of Yokoyu River sourced from Shiga-Kogen of the Joshinetsu-Kogen National Park in northern part of Nagano prefecture. Because of the very steep cliffs and the steam coming out of the springs in everywhere, ancient people called this valley "Jigokudani (Hell valley)".
This area is covered with snow almost one third of the year.
However, such severe environment is a paradise on earth for monkeys to live in. The troops of wild Japanese macaque (they are popularly known as snow monkeys) inhabit here naturally through the ages. Since the establishment of Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park in 1964, it has been a worldwide popular place for watching the bathing monkeys in a hot spring and observing its unique ecology for researchers and photographers.
