The enchanting landscapes of Japan in winter provide our small group of travelers with an extraordinary expedition that includes wildlife, culture, and an incredible variety of exciting bird sightings.
Among the many highlights of this trip is our time spent in Jigokudani, a steep-sided valley set amid forested mountains, observing and photographing the resident troops of Japanese macaques (snow monkeys) bathing in their very own hot pools. The viewing area has an online ‘Monkey Cam’ that we regularly stop to pose in front of, not knowing exactly when the snap shots would be taken. See if you can spot our happy adventurers on the ‘Monkey Cam’ the next time our Snow Monkeys & Cranes of Japan expedition is in the field. In the mean time, see what the monkeys are up to right now on the Snow Monkey Cam!
