Finally after 40 minutes of hike, we arrived at the entrance of the snow monkey park. Please take a few minutes to read the dos and don’ts for entering this park. Park admission is 500JPY.
The monkeys are probably used to getting visitors as they just roam freely as they want and not running away from the visitors. On the contrary I was scared of them jumping on me 😛
You can see where all the crowd is in this small park.
This baby Monkey don’t really care.
Hmmmm, why are you looking at me?
I think it is better that I go back to my mummy’s arms from all these weird humans.
This is the main attraction – monkeys soaking in the hot spring.
I almost felt that they are almost human like.
Helping the senior monkeys getting rid of the lice….
aLmost human like right?
Mother and child.
Cuddling near to mum.
Look at the older monkey in the background, thoroughly enjoying.
Do not disturb my sleep.
While we were enjoying the scene in the hot spring pool, suddenly many monkeys clambered out, giving me a little scare. Ah, meal time! No wonder.
Do not cross this border!
Hey, this is mine!
We know who is the king of monkeys.
Dark fur balls amidst the white background.
Then it was another 40 minutes hike back on the same route to take the bus back to Nagano Station
Good bye! Finally I get to cross this on my to visit list….I am so glad to visit this Snow Monkey Park during the winter.
So, are you interested to see these little monkeys enjoying their hot spring soak?
