    Winter is here and from tomorrow onward – December 1st 2018 – Snow Monkey Resorts will be operating our alternative pickup points for tours starting in Nagano City. This service will run until March 31st 2019 and can be requested at the time of booking through the online reservation form or following booking by emailing us (in response to our confirmation email) or messaging us directly through the website.

     

    For guests joining either of our 1-Day Snow Monkeys, Zenko-ji Temple & Sake or 1-Day Snow Monkeys & Snow Fun in Shiga Kogen Tours between those dates, you can select from pickup points including:

     

    Pickup Point :     Zenko-ji Temple Area @ 9:00AM

    Pickup Point :     Hotel Kokusai 21 Area @ 9:10 

    Pickup Point :     JR Nagano Station @ 9:35AM

     

    Our main pickup point remains at JR Nagano Station at 9:35AM. If you want to meet your guide at the station there is no need to request a pickup point as it is the default meeting place. However, for guests with accommodation booked away from the station, the additional pickup points in the Zenko-ji Temple Area at 09:00AM and Hotel Kokusai 21 at 09:10AM may be very convenient for you.

     

    Pick-up Point ①: Zenko-ji Temple Area @ 9:00AM / RESERVATION REQUIRED
