          Hi, I have just read reviews of the above ryokan. My husband and I are staying there in 2 weeks for 3 nights. Can you please tell me if you did any tours or any other interesting things in the area as I am struggling with things to do other than see the snow monkeys which obviously is our reason for visiting the area. I tried Zeno for a tour but he is unavailable at that time. We are there end of January. Any help would be appreciated. Regards, Rosie
