Additional Info
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • The temperature of winter months in Shiga-kogen Highlands is cold and can be minus 5 – 10 degree. Please be dressed in warm, waterproof clothing and boots for snow activities. There are rentals for snow outfits (snow jackets, pants, gloves, snow boots) available for ¥500 each. You can pay the fee to your guide on the spot.
  • 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. Your guide will explain the rules prior to entering the park.
  • Not wheelchair accessible
  • Near public transportation
  • Infant seats available
  • Travellers should have a moderate physical fitness level
  • The tour itinerary can be reversed and we may visit the ski resort in the morning followed by lunch and monkeys in the early afternoon, depending on weather and road conditions, and other factors on the day. We do so in an effort to provide guests the best possible experience on the day.
  • 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
