Yamanouchi Town is located in the northern part of Nagano Prefecture, which is home to the Jigokudani Yaen Park that is inhabited with world-famous wild monkeys called "Snow Monkeys." Why not stay in this vast and popular sightseeing area, full of nature and the pleasant atmosphere of onsen (hot springs)? EBESA offers great value with tours that let you see, experience and fully enjoy the traditional activities in three main areas -- Shiga Kogen, Yudanaka Shibu Onsen-kyo and Kita Shiga Kogen.
In the northern Nagano dialect, "EBESA" originally meant "Let's go." For guests who are staying at onsen inns in hot spring resorts or at the highland hotels of Shiga / Kita Shiga Heights, we recommend our "EBESA" travel products, optional tours which tourists can easily participate in. With the "EBESA!" greeting, the tours will take you into everything from hiking trips guided by local experts to performing arts in hot spring resorts. You can choose whatever you like from our plans! When you're wondering what to do tomorrow, just join the EBESA tours. EBESA -- let's go!
