午前中に訪問しましたが、公園到着前に猿の集団が山から下りてきてしまい有名な温泉に入っている姿を見るのに１時間弱待つことになりました。野生なので本当に運を持っているか否かが関係してくると思います。公園手前のエリアも生息地になっており、歩いてゆく我々の横をびゅんびゅん走り抜けていて、こちらがビビッてしまうほど。人間慣れしているのか襲われることはあまりないようですが、食べ物などは手に持ってはいけないよう... more »We visited in the morning, but we had to wait less than an hour to see a group of monkeys coming down from the mountains before arriving at the park and taking a famous hot spring. It's wild, so i think it really concerns whether you have luck or not. The area in front of the park is also a habitat, and we run through the side of us walking, and this one is so scared. It seems that you are not very familiar with humans or are attacked, but you should be careful not to have food in your hand. By the way, it is not directly related to the park, but because the visit in winter when entering the hot spring enters will walk in the mountain from the nearest bus stop and the parking lot, clothes and shoes equipment are necessary. In addition, nagano electric railway is selling "Snow Monkey Pass", but i put it for free once, but just in case because the wait is not exempt ed like a fast pass when waiting for admission, such as during congestion.
