The Snow Monkey Park is a unique place where you can observe the wild monkeys going about their daily lives including the unique behavior of bathing in onsens (natural hot springs). They are the only troop known to do so, something that entered the global consciousness in 1970 when LIFE magazine profiled the bathing monkeys on its cover. Since that time, visitors from around the world have been coming to the park to spend time with the famous snow monkeys of Jigokudani.

Snow Monkey

Though wild, the monkeys come to the park throughout the year. A place of four distinct seasons, there is never a bad time to visit! Most famously, the snow monkeys love to soak themselves in the cold and heavy snow of winter. Spring is a time for new babies, summer is lush and verdant, and autumn transforms the landscape into a mosaic of red, amber, and gold as leaves turn before the return of winter.
