Tour Description

The steep and jagged cliff lines of Jigokudani Valley, hazed by the rising steam from the very depths of the earth, create a back drop not soon to be forgotten. Locals aptly named the site ‘Jigokudani’ (Hell’s Valley) after its close resemblance to Hell. Not as scary as it sounds, however, and remains a truly memorable experience safe for all ages. We here at IXSM pioneered the very first tour to come see these wild Macaque monkeys relaxing in their natural hot spring baths, and are proud to be able to offer the original and best chance to see the Snow Monkeys of Japan. We have 5 years of experience; guided thousands of guests from dozens of countries; so rest assured you are in safe hands.

After visiting with the Monkeys we offer you the exclusive look into the historic Onsen Village of Shibu. This village was frequented by Samurai, poets, and travellers alike; all looking to recharge and heal wearied or battle-damaged bodies. Good fortune is said to come to those who bathe in all the Onsens in town.

This village is a picture from the past. As you stroll through the narrow streets lined with traditional buildings, some hundreds of years old, you might just get to see some friends from the Monkey Park as they wander through town looking for food and maybe an open door to an Onsen.

Our professional, experienced native English-speaking staff can offer the bilingual service that ensures peace of mind and an unforgettable day tour to your already memorable holiday here in Japan!
