Japan had long been a dream travel destination for me, particularly once I heard about the Nagano snow monkeys. I’ve always had a thing for monkeys and their strange human-like tendencies. As we hiked through the snow to the mountain onsens (natural volcanic hot springs) where they congregate, I couldn’t believe my eyes as hundred of them lay in a trace in the volcanic heated water of the springs. A moment i’ll never forget!
