Jigokudani Yaen-koen sits at an altitude of 850 meters and is located in the Valley of Yokoyu River in the northern part of Nagano Prefecture. The park is home to Japanese macaques that can be viewed bathing in the hot springs year-round, but are most picturesque in the winter. The 2km trail begins after a short ascent from the bus stop, through a flat forested trail along the side of a mountain along the Yokoyu river. A visitor center and ticket booth are located at the end of the trail to provide entrance to the main park.
