Fondly called ‘Snow Monkeys’, the monkeys of Jigokudani in fact come to the park all year round. Experience the monkey park in combination with lunch at nearby Enza Café and a 2-Day Snow Monkey Pass

Enza Café is only moments from the trail leading to the monkey park, and with its casual atmosphere including large outdoor terrace, is the perfect spot to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. You can choose from their popular lunch plates including pizza, ramen or wrap sandwich as your main with fried chicken and french fries on the side.

Enjoy your lunch at Enza before or after your visit the monkey park – whatever works best for you. Your Snow Monkey Pass is valid for two days of use, including one entry to the monkey park on either day but unlimited use of the Snow Monkey Express Bus and Nagaden train line.

Infants (0-5) are free of charge. An infant lunch is not included and the order will be made directly to the restaurant according to your needs.monkey-park-winter

Suggested Itinerary:

It’s up to you! Your Snow Monkey Pass is valid for use – on Nagaden trains and buses to and from the monkey park – for two days. Noting that you can however only use the pass to enter the monkey park once, the order in which you do things is completely up to you!

Enza Café will be expecting you on the first day, but whether you go before heading into the park or on your way, it’s completely up to you. Just show them your booking receipt and enjoy your lunch! For visitors wanting to head directly to and from the park, we suggest using the Nagaden Snow Monkey Express Bus running to and from Nagano Station. Your pass includes bus of both the bus and train, allowing you to also use the train – a great way to combine your visit to the monkeys and lunch with morning or afternoon visits to destinations including Yudanaka and Shibu Onsen, Obuse or Suzaka. The choice is yours!
