The monkeys can be found in Jigokudani, Nagano. They often jump into hot springs to protect their bodies from the cold weather in winter. They looks like human beings. Watching monkeys in hot springs and bathing Onsen in Nagano is a good plan to spend winter vacation.

5. Sitting lazily in a kotatsu

I believe kotatsu is a very typical piece of furniture in Japan. Actually, it's only a small table with a small heat system installed right under the table face. It's comfortably warm to put your legs inside the table and eat oranges are kind of "Happy Time" in winter.
