Snow Monkey Extension
Japan 5 days ex Tokyo

Tokyo is a fusion of both ancient and modern worlds. Discover the best of Old Edo and her 'downtown' area, as well as all the highlights of
New Tokyo before speeding up to Nagano, nestled in the Japanese Alps. Peaceful Zenko-ji in Nagano is home to Japan’s oldest Buddha
image and nearby shops sell steaming bowls of Soba noodles that the area is famous for. Nearby are the snow monkeys, taking shelter
from the cold in a warm onsen and we spend 2 days exploring the area before heading back to Tokyo.
