We travelled 2 hours by train to see the monkeys in the natural spa, big mistake on our part. Sure the onsen (spa) is a natural one but the environment is a zoo enclosure. There are approximately 100 monkeys. Although they are very cool to...More

To access the Yunokawa Onsen area easily, must take a bus no.6 and 96 from Hakodate-eki-mae. Yunokawa 1 chome bus stop is gateway to the onsen. To be able to enjoy the area properly, it's best to check into one of the Onsen hotel. There...More

To find this Venue is not easy, but when I look at the attraction is not my expectation, I only see some monkey with red nose play at a little pool....and the small hut nearby as botanical garden... Not worthed.

Not worth travelling all the way to watch monkeys bathing in onsen. The monkeys are kept and not wild. There is a small bontanic garden but nothing much in there too. So boring watching the monkeys in an enclosed place. There were no other visitors...More

The monkeys look pretty miserable walking around on concrete and folks throwing random food at 'em, which most likely isn't too good for their digestive system to be eating processed food. All in all, not worth the visit just to be passive in not supporting...More

We will be arriving in Hakodate by cruise ship on Saturday, May 2nd, 2015. How far is the Yunokawa Onsen from the port? Is it possible for we two women to enjoy bathing in the onsen without being guests at the hotel? If so, what type of baths are available? What is the cost? Do we bring our own towels? Is the bathing entirely in the nude? Are men and women separate? Thank you for your help. Sandy B.
