Shibu Onsen or Yudanaka Onsen - day tripper

Hi.

We will be visiting the Snow Monkey Park on a day trip from Nagano city in end Jan 2018.

As a side trip, we would also like to take a dip in an onsen after the park.

- would you recommend Shibu Onsen or Yudanaka ?

- any particular ryokan/onsen that you would recommend for day trippers ?

Besides the Kaeda no yu public bath and Oyu bath house

- we are also concern about getting between the Monkey Park and Yudanaka Onsen/Shibu Onsen, and then back to Nagano city at the end of the day, bearing in mind it will be v cold and days are short.

- does anyone have the bus timetable (for Jan 2018) between:

Nagano city and Monkey Park

Monkey park and Shibu Onsen/Yudanaka Onsen ?

The snowmonkeyresorts website seems to only have timetables untl end Dec 2017.

Many thanks in advance.

I personally think it's better to stay at Shibu Onsen.

Thanks mabei.

I was thinking of spending a few hours only at Shibu Onsen or Yudanaka Onsen after visiting the Snow Monkey Park.

May just spend a while strolling in the town and also a dip in an onsen.

Any recommendations for a ryokan which allows day trippers ?

Thanks.
