Dear Goodman, please don't hesitate to PM me if you need more information to plan your trip ! I might go there again before leaving Japan (end of July this year unfortunately...) but I think the best moment to see them is in the middle of winter, with the snow...

Dear Goodman, thank you for you nice comment, you were the first one to post a comment on my pictures on DPC, and the first one ever, as DPC is my first attempt to show my pictures in public !

If you want to see them in real life you have to plan a trip to Jigokudani, it's a wonderful place with a nice small ryokan (japanese type of inn).
Here is a link for you to see them through their webcam :
