Japanese Snow Monkeys.
Ever since we released a ski package to Hakuba in Nagano Prefecture, Japan, that has an optional day trip to Jigokudani to see the snow monkeys, I have been trawling the internet for more and more adorable pictures of these little red-faced creatures. Even better when they're either shivering in the cold, or relaxed with relief in the warm waters of the hot springs. I simply had to put a collection here so everyone else can enjoy them as much as I have!
If you want to see these cuties in real life, we have a Ski Hakuba package out now for Japan. It includes flights, accommodation and a 3 day lift pass. I'd recommend spending 2 days on the slopes and then adding on a day trip which goes to the Jigokudani Wild Monkey Hotsprings, as well as the Masuichi Sake Brewery and Zenkoji Temple. It takes awhile to get there, but come on - how often are you gonna get the chance to see macaques bathing in onsens! See pics on our Pinterest page if you need more convincing!
