There are a number of reasons to visit Nagano, which hosted the 1998 Winter Olympics. Not least of which is to visit the macaques who enjoy bathing in the hot springs near the city. While it’s become a touristy site for good reason, the area is open without barriers between monkeys and humans, who are enthralled by the monkeys’ behavior.
