Is this a dream or what! Onsen and monkeys! What else can you possible ask for! In Nagano, you can take a trek in Snow Monkey Park, known in Japan as the Jikokudani Yaen Koen, and you will be surrounded by onsens and monkeys. I think this should be on your bucket list if it isn't already!

Okonomiyaki is definitely a staple of Japanese cuisine and travelers really love trying it. If you've never had it, Japanese people tend to have a hard time explaining what it is; they call it a "Japanese pizza".
