Niigata to Yudanaka

In the middle of a huge snow dump, we said goodbye to Niigata, bound for Yudanaka, Nagano prefecture. This is what I have been dreaming of…..visiting the snow monkeys. We took a bus the station (50 minutes or so) then 3 train changes and we made it to Yudanaka – the gateway to the snow monkeys. It is a gorgeous little town, nestled in the mountains.
You can see in the photos all the snow this morning……..
