Snow Monkeys, Sake Tasting and Onsen Village

Starting in December 2018 Snowball Chalet is running tours to The Jigokudani snow monkeys. The famous monkeys have been warming themselves in volcanic hot springs for centuries and seeing them is one of the best experiences in the country. It makes for an easy, fantastic half day trip from Madarao. We also do a visit to Yudanaka Onsen, a lovely spa town (for humans) and sake tasting at the Shiga Brewery. You can buy some of the most awarded sake in Japan and get to see the brewing process as well.
