Jigokudani Onsen Korakukan

6818 Hirao, Yamanochi, Shimotakai-gun, Nagano Jigokudani Hot Spring Korakukan


A legendary inn where monkeys came to bathe in a onsen

Established in late Edo period, It has a history of more than 150 years.

In order to reach the inn, you need to walk the mountain path that cannot go by car. As you walk about 1,8km from the nearest parking lot to the hotel, recommend you to carry your luggage in a backpack, not in a suitcase.

In front of the inn, Shibu no Jigokudani Fountain is blowing high. Jigokudani means Hell Valley in Japanese, Jigokudani Fountain is designated as a national natural monument. The hot spring that gushes from the bottom of the river is a natural fountain that can be up to 20 meters high. It’s dynamic landscape is also great!

All of the hot springs are 100% pure. In Indoor bath and private family bath, you can enjoy thetraditional atmosphere of old-fashioned hot springs. Two outdoor baths are mixed bath and women’s only. In the mixed bath, visitors can wear a towel.

The first time in the world that wild Japanese monkeys got in a hot spring was this open-air bath. Of course, a lovely Japanese monkey will come around the inn.

As the sun sets, it will be surrounded with silence. And the sound of the fountain spouting and the sound of the river echoing over the mountains. This is the best situation where you can see the shining starry sky.

The hotel has a total of 13 rooms, In addition to serving guests in English, and also serves vegan, vegetarian and allergic travelers.

Nearby, there is a Jigokudani Yaen-koen which is known worldwide as WILD SNOW MONKEY PARK. Please enjoy nature while looking at cute monkeys.
