A beguiling mix of contrast with unique customs and cuisine- steeped in tradition yet ahead of its time!
THE SPA LOVING SNOW MONKEYS IN THE ALPS
Take a Japanese safari! Visit the snow monkeys of the Japanese Alps. Animals and wildlife perhaps don’t spring to mind when you first think of Japan, instead you might picture giant cities, huge skyscrapers and endless people swarming across pedestrian crossings. Up in the mountains you’ll find Japan’s native monkey population, famous for escaping the winter snow to enjoy hot spring baths, just like people. To escape the chill of winter, the monkeys love to play in the natural hot spring baths. It’s a fantastic spectacle; unperturbed by humans and their cameras, whole families of monkeys eat, wash, splash around and even have snowball fights.
