Jigokudani is famous for its hot springs and the macaque monkeys that bathe in them. It is the only place in the world where wild monkeys bathe in hot springs. Jigokudani is located at an altitude of 850 meters in Nagano Prefecture. The steep cliffs and the steam rising from the hot springs gave Jigokudani the name "Hell Valley".
