Great Private Tour
Great day trip spent with Toru to see the snow monkeys, Obuse and Zenkoji. His knowledge, experience and energy made it a fun filled day.

An excellent day with great company! The snow monkeys were a treat. The temple tour was very comprehensive and the sake tasting plus lunch were very good. Highly recommended.

Full-Day Private Nagano Tour: Zenkoji Temple, Obuse, Jigokudani Monkey Park
WeiWei was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the local towns, foods, culture and monkeys :) She was very patient as we stayed with the monkeys for over an hour taking photos and observing them. We had a great time with her, and highly suggest booking a private tour, so you can go at your own pace with the monkeys, saki tasting, and a bit more of a local's experience.

Full-Day Private Nagano Tour: Zenkoji Temple, Obuse, Jigokudani Monkey Park
Tour guide was informational and thorough. He took us to a cherry farm and tasted some cherries fresh from the orchard. The Snow Monkey Park was something to experience. Tour guide was able to chase an overly aggressive monkey away. He took us to a Soba restaurant and it was delicious. We felt safe with his driving.

1-Day Snow Monkeys, Zenko-ji Temple & Sake in Nagano Tour
This tour was the highlight of our trip. Louki our guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. Although it was early April when we were there, the snow monkeys were around to see. They were lovely and fun to watch. The visit to the Zenko-ji Temple was good and it was impressive to see. The sake tasting was great and we learnt a lot about sake whilst we were there. Overall it was an excellent experience and we would recommend doing this tour.

1-Day Snow Monkeys, Zenko-ji Temple & Sake in Nagano Tour
I had an amazing time on this tour. The temple was especially beautiful, the monkeys were as full of monkey-ness as anyone could hope, and the guides added so much depth to the experience, while still giving plenty of space to explore on our own (a trickier balance to achieve than it might seem). Really thoughtfully arranged.

1-Day Snow Monkeys, Zenko-ji Temple & Sake in Nagano Tour
This tour was the best tour we did in Japan. Easy train connection from Tokyo to Nagano and our guide was fantastic. Snow Monkeys was awesome! Fantastic Japanese lunch in a beautiful old Japanese building, our guide was very knowledgeable about the Zenko-ji Temple and some Sake tasting to top it off. Perfect tour to do in Japan.

Very well planned tour, our guide was very knowledgable of the history of Zenko-Ji Temple. The lunch was very delicious and the snow monkeys were very cute! Would love to do this tour in winter when they are actually batheing in the hot springs!
