Snow Monkey Day Tour

Mayumi Takahashi Doll Art Museum

The Mayumi Takahashi Museum of Doll Art was opened in Iiyama City, Nagano Prefecture in April 2010. Its concept was to allow visitors to enjoy both the world of heartwarming dolls and the warmth of the traditional Japanese countryside that inspired them.

The museum displays about 100 pieces at a time, all hand crafted by the celebrated artist Mayumi Takahashi. Based on careful study of local people, Takahashi’s dolls wear entirely human expressions, creating heartwarming scenes of the bonds between family and friends. In one corner, a special video offers a look into the craftsmanship behind these works of art.

Snow Monkey Park

The Japanese snow monkeys are now famous all over the world. In the winter they come down from the forest to bath in the natural hot spring water. The park is a 25minute walk from the car park and is situated in a natural forest area where the wild monkeys roam about freely.

This is great chance to get close to the monkeys and take some amazing photographs. Although the monkeys are wild animals they are used to see people and this means you can get very close to them. The snow monkeys are a must see attraction if you are the Myoko area.

Katsushika Hokusai Art Museum

Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) was an ukiyo-e artist. Ukiyo-e is a genre of Japanese woodblock prints and paintings produced during the Edo Period (1603-1867). Hokusai was the leading Ukiyo-e artist of that time. Hokusai was known to have influenced, among others, Vincent van Gogh and other French impressionists.

In 1976, Hokusai Museum was opened in Obuse where Hokusai made a long stay in his later years. The museum houses and exhibits his works centred on the ones painted by hand as well as 2 festival floats which have Hokusai’s painting on the ceiling.
