    Enjoy snow covered forests, winter scenery and some real off the beaten track photo opportunities rarely seen by foreign visitors to Japan. Here you will see the Japanese Snow Monkey or Japanese Macaque . About 250 wild monkeys live here and freely wander around .

    Most people have only seen these photogenic little characters on TV , bathing in the steamy rock pools formed by the hot spring waters that naturally bubble to the surface of the ground in many geothermal areas. On this Japan tour you will have the opportunity to get within a few feet of them either sitting in the spa pools or bounding around in the snow.

    Here your accommodation is located at a small Spa Village in a genuine ryokan, which also has another thermal bath for you to relax in. If you wish to, you can also bathe in an outdoor pool ( rotenburo ) surrounded by snow where you are not going to be joined by the snow monkeys. No, this is not the basic Inn that you saw on the TV show, but a far better quality traditional Japanese style ryokan including fine Japanese banquet dinners and breakfasts.

    Your Tokyo accommodation

    Your Tokyo accommodation is at the Keio Plaza Hotel, a four star hotel located in the heart of Shinjuku, one of the main centre for nightlife and shopping. Just a one block walk from Shinjuku Station Keio Plaza Hotel offers all the modern western facilities you would expect of a luxury hotel. From here you can even walk to Shinjuku Gardens or go shopping in one of the brightest, liveliest, most interesting areas of Tokyo. This is a marvellous location for finding discount shops, boutiques, department stores and excellent restaurants.
