Outside the resort, there are a handful of other key attractions in the Nagano region. The “Jigokudani Monkey Park”, or “Hell Valley Monkey Park”, known for its bathing Nagano monkeys, is 30 minutes away from the hotel by car. There, visitors can see up to 200 monkeys enjoying a bath in a man-made hot spring and may even encounter some monkeys on the trail.
