Day trip snow monkey. Need advice 2017/11/12 03:20
Me, my wife, and or 2 years old daughter will visit japan on 5-17 dec 2017.

My itinerary will be like this :

5 dec : landed in haneda at 8am. We will activateJR pass to go to osaka until 8dec (booked already)

9 dec : go to Takayama in the morning , check in there and spend day trip to shirakawa go. Spend a night in takayama (booked already)

10 dec : go to hirayu onsen by bus, check in, spend a day trip to mountain hotaka ropeway. Spend a night in hirayu onsen. (Booked already)

11dec : go to snow monkey but after that we will straight back to tokyo (since it will be the last day of my 7days JR pass still active)

12-17 dec : tokyo

The question is : is it possible that my 11 dec plan to be done?

I know from hirayu onsen i have to take bus to Matsumoto, then take train to Nagano, then another train to Yudanaka station or by bus from Nagano to Snow Monkey Parking

My another question is : which trip that will not cover by JR pass.


Thanks before.

Really need suggestions from all.

Bus from Hirayu onsen to Matsumoto, train from Nagano to Yudanaka station or bus from Nagano to Snow Monkey Parking.

From Yudanaka station you still need bus or taxi to Snow Monkey Parking. And with 2 year old, might take you over 40min walk to the park, could be more if it snows.
