Monkey bathing(Yudanaka) in Nagano

Hi there ,I am Matsu from J-Hoppers Hida Takayama.

Have you heard about Monkeys bathing in hot-spring ?

If you didn't know about it,it is in guide book of Lonely planet.

I have wanted to go to check this place out for long time.

Finally I went there in my car the other day.It is pretty far from Takayama, took 4 hours drive.

It is located in a remote area near Matsumoto city in Nagano prefecture.

It is a popular day trip from Matsumoto city,taking 2 hours trip by JR and private train.
