As Nagano’s No.1 tour operator and destination management company, Snow Monkey Resorts connects you to work in Nagano City and the broader region including its many ski resorts.
Home to the world-famous Snow Monkeys of Jigokudani and host of the 1998 Winter Olympics – with more than 70 ski resorts and world-class powder – Nagano is one of the few rural areas in Japan which can proudly boast of an international profile.
Nagano’s global profile is counterbalanced by its traditional character, manifest in its quaint rural villages, seemingly endless farmlands, ancient temples, shrines, trails, and slower pace of life. A place of four seasons in which landscape and culture have always shaped each other, Nagano is a repository for what Japanese call “satoyama”, the harmonious intersection of human tradition and nature – often identified as a national heartland.
Nagano is a preferred destination for both Japanese and international residents wanting to move away from the congestion and stress of large cities and crowded urban centers. Blessed with abundant and beautiful natural landscapes, great food, enticing hot springs, and an easy pace of life pace, Nagano affords residents one of the highest standards of living in Japan.
With world-class skiing and snowboarding on your doorstep in winter, the melting snow nourishes the region’s bountiful farmlands through spring, summer, and autumn to produce some of Japan’s best food, while the high mountains above entice you back with stunning hiking and green season activities.
Only 1.5 hours from central Tokyo, Nagano is in many other ways a world apart from the neon, buzz, and stress of the big city. A place to get back to nature, back to tradition, and feel alive.
