Important Information

・Children from 10 years old and up can join. Adult pricing starts at 13 years old.
・During the winter it is very common to see the Snow Monkeys enjoying the hot spring bath, however from spring up to autumn there will be times where the monkeys play or eat in the water, however please note that the monkeys are wild animals and there is no guarantee that there will be monkeys in the bath. On the other hand, during this time they are often more playful, enjoy sunbathing, grooming and doing all kinds of other cute things which will surely bring a smile to your face.
・There are a few days in the year that the monkeys might not come down to the park. In such case the park is closed and we will provide an alternative activity.
・We might not be able to provide the cycling part of the tour according to schedule in case of bad to extreme weather conditions. In that case, we will provide an alternative activity.
・Local public onsen (hot spring) is available after the bike tour. If you want to make use of the onsen, we suggest to bring a towel and a change of clothes. The entrance fee is ¥300 and the towels can also be bought at the onsen. The onsen has shampoos, body soap, and a hairdryer.
