Welcome to Jigokudani Onsen Korakukan. Jigokudani Onsen Korakukan in closest Ryokan from snow monkey park.
Jigokudani is located in the valley of the Yokoyu-River, in the northern part of the prefecture. The name Jigokudani, meaning “Hell’s Valley”, is due to the steam and boiling water that bubbles out of small crevices in the frozen ground, surrounded by steep cliffs and formidably cold and hostile forests.

The heavy snowfalls (snow covers the ground for 4 months a year), an elevation of 850 metres, and being only accessible via a narrow two kilometre footpath through the forest, keep it uncrowded despite being relatively well-known.

It is famous for its large population of wild Snow Monkeys, that go to the valley during the winter, foraging elsewhere in the national park during the warmer months. Starting in 1963, the monkeys descend from the steep cliffs and forest to sit in the warm waters of the onsen (hotsprings), and return to the security of the forests in the evenings.

Jigokudani Onsen Korakukan is well-known as a birthplace of shin-fuseki (new strategic placing of pieces) in the Japanese game go.
And also there is a stone monument. You can see autographed game board of Kitani Minoru who was a Go player with excellent skills.
