About
In the middle of the cold winter, there is one festival that will surely keep you warm at night! The Nozawa Onsen Fire Festival, called 'Dosojin Matsuri' in Japanese, is one the three great fire festivals in Japan, taking place each winter in the picturesque village of one of Nagano's most popular ski resorts. This lively tour takes you to the Fire Festival in combination with a visit to the world-famous hot spring-bathing snow monkeys of Jigokudani - a day and night that will leave you with burning memories of the tradition, culture, and snow monkeys of Nagano!

Great experience
We did the tour with our two girls and two other families. It was easy to organise us all into the one tour. We had a great time and it was the experience of a lifetime. Snow monkeys are a must see. The late lunch was amazing. Then the fire festival itself was amazing to be able to witness. The tour was very well organised. The instructions were clear and helpful throughout the tour. The guides were helpful and friendly. Highly recommend it.
