Great day. Host made you welcome. Temple street has old world charm in Nagano. Lunch delicious. Walk to monkeys a bit hard at first, uphill but levels off with beautiful scenery. Monkeys are something to see. Babies gorgeous with mums.

The whole day was fantastic, constant but not rushed. Our guide was brilliant and ensured that we all felted involved, answering our questions and find out the answers if unsure. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Could not be happier! The tour was perfectly paced, the things included were terrific, the food was wonderful, the guides were exceptional, friendly and professional and the monkeys were AMAZING! So happy! Thanks!
