You will definitely want to sit in the onsen after the hike to see the monkeys.

We stayed 2 nights at the Ryokan in a very traditional Japanese room with Tatami mats and sleeping quarters. Even had bed warmers to keep us toasty warm. The package included breakfast and dinner which was a great experience each time with multiple courses and a taste extravaganza. No burgers and fries here. The service from everyone in the hotel was excellent with enough English spoken to assist with all of our needs. It is walking distance to the entrance of the snow monkey park. You will definitely want to sit in the onsen after the hike to see the monkeys. I would definitely go back and highly recommend.
