Watching the macaques at Jigokudani Monkey Park

With winter well underway, we’re embracing all of its comforts—from hot baths and cosy clothing to hearty foods (and lots of it).

The arrival of December also marks the beginning of the peak season for macaque-watching at Jigokudani Monkey Park. Located in the northern part of the Nagano prefecture, one of Japan’s premier winter destinations, this national park is one of the area’s most popular attractions and the only place in the world where you can watch wild Japanese macaques (otherwise known as ‘snow monkeys’) take a bath in the hot springs.

Surrounded by Nagano’s dramatic mountains and buried in snow for almost a third of the year, Jigokudani (which translates to ‘hell valley’) and its cold winter temperatures provide the perfect paradise for monkeys between December and March. 

For visitors, not only does watching the macaques playfully interact with each other in their natural habitat offer a truly unmissable wildlife experience but the surrounding scenery and mounds of untouched snow are set to take your breath away.

To celebrate this magical opportunity, we’re slipping into a pair of our Seafoam Green - Twisted Soroban hybrid boxer briefs and we think you should too. Showcasing a deliberate entanglement of anchors (ikari) and Rhombus chains inspired by the Japanese abacus, this striking design takes influence from nature with its soft green-blue shade that also represents purity and youth. 

Crafted from silky soft fabric that’s lightweight and quick to dry and featuring a flexible waistband for utmost comfort, Seafoam Green - Twisted Soroban was made in Japan and designed to promote inner strength. If high-quality performance starts with high-quality underwear, then this unique design will have you set up for a winter season of confidence and success.

What’s more, Seafoam Green - Twisted Soroban also comes packaged in our unique branded PVC case, which is perfect for trips to the gym or excursions away (to the Jigokudani Monkey Park, perhaps?).

Whether you’re planning a trip to watch the macaques or enjoying your own version of winter comforts from home, wearing our Seafoam Green - Twisted Soroban boxers promise an unforgettable sartorial experience this season.

How and where will you wear yours?
