  • Children from 3 years old and up can join this tour.
  • Infants (3-5) are free of charge. (No tour meal is included. Please order foods directly to the restaurant.)
  • There are a few days in the year that the monkeys might not come down to the park. In such case we will provide an alternative activity
  • Guests are required to follow the Snow Monkey Park rules at all times. Guests are not permitted to touch, hold, feed or bathe with the monkeys at any time. There are no barriers separating the monkeys from visitors to the park. Please ensure you keep a minimum distance of 1 to 2 meters between yourself and the monkeys.

  • While unlikely, should weather or road conditions make it impossible to access Shiga Kogen, we would switch the activity to a visit to Zenko-ji Temple.
  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 18 travellers
