    Jigokudani has an eerie look to it not because it means Hell's Valley but due to its steaming hot bubbles and hostile landscape. Engulfed with steep cliffs, Jigokudani Monkey Park is well known for snow monkeys (Japanese Macaques) and are seen enjoying the hot springs to themselves. According to Japanese folklore, these monkeys are the Shinto gods messengers and probably hold a spiritual sentiment to the locals.
