What an experience. We visited the snow monkeys today. I chose today because it has been snowing here and I thought it would be perfect with the snow falling on the monkeys. It must have been lower down and was a way off from here and it was not snowing but it was amazing to see them soaking in the hot springs with such a look of bliss on their faces. I have yet to use the onsen in the Ryokan where we are staying but will definitely do soon. Just the thing to ease sore legs.
