I'm a professional tour guide and a professional hire driver at the same time. That's why I can offer you a bargain tour. firstly, this is exclusive for your group. You don't have to compromise with other participants on the course. Secondly, The Wild Park of Snow Monkeys is among the hottest sightseeing spots in Japan. But it's hard to reach here 'Jigokutani' owing to an inconvenient traffic condition. This tour completely has overcome the difficulty.
If you are interested in watching snow monkeys and visiting a prestigious temple, this is the best choice !!!

After successful feeding, this monkey park in the Jigokudani Onsen area was established in 1964 to protect and observe wild monkeys, known as Snow Monkeys in English. The hot spring pool dedicated to the monkeys, measuring 4m by 10m, was later constructed, as some of them had started dipping in the outdoor pools owned by the nearby onsen inns.

You can see monkeys throughout the year, but they only soak in the hot spring during the winter months. The park is currently inhabited by around 160 monkeys, and on a very cold day, visitors are likely to see nearly 50 of them taking a bath together. After covered by the Life magazine and spread by words of mouth during the Nagano Winter Olympics, this unique experience of viewing wild monkeys has attracted a large number of foreign tourists.

Prepare a pair of snow boots as you need to walk 30 minutes on a snow-covered path from the car parking area.

Katsushika Hokusai, The Giant of Ukiyoe Printing, often visited this town. He was not only the first runner of Ukiyoe-World but also a great painter. We can see his paintings here. And the museum dedicated him is amazing !

Obuse Town, located in north-east of Nagano Prefecture, has a population of ten thousand in which lots of merchants thrived in Edo Era, 1603-1867. Thanks to their supports for art. many artists tied up with Obuse. Katsushika Hokusai, The Giant of Ukiyoe, is a good example. We can see his works. We learn his achievement in Hokusai Museum here Obuse. And one more selling point is that Obuse is a famous product area for chestnuts. We enjoy various sweets and confections here. Obuse.

Zenko-ji temple is one of the oldest Buddhist temples in Japan which was built in 642. The shopping arcade leading to the main hall still remains old atmosphere. And this area is the origin of Japanese buck wheat noodles.

Zenkō-ji is one of the most important Buddhist temples located outside Kyoto or Nara area. Personally this temple gave me a very impressive memory when I visited first time and really I want foreign visitors to guide here.

The temple was built in the 7th century, Nagano city, established in 1897, was originally a town built around the temple. Historically, Zenkō-ji is perhaps most famous for its involvement in the battles between Kenshin UESUGI and Shingen TAKEDA in the 16th century, when it served as one of Kenshin's bases of operations. Currently, Zenkō-ji is one of the last few remaining pilgrimage sites in Japan.

The temple enshrines images of the Amida Buddha. According to legend, the image, having caused dispute between two clans, was dumped into a canal. It was later rescued by Yoshimitsu Honda. The temple was thus named "Zenkō," according to the Chinese transliteration of Yoshimitsu's name.

I am looking forward to seeing you in front of Zenkō-ji and showing you the impressive building!
