Snow Monkeys or Japanese Macaque
We came to Japan this week for Ken's niece's wedding, but as a side trip, we took a few days and traveled to Nagano and spent two nights at a wonderful ryokon (hot spring hotel). One morning Yumiko and I traveled by van to Shigakogen and then walked on a high ridge to a place where the Snow Monkeys (Japanese Macaque) live with their own hot spring. Here are a few photographs of these beautiful animals. Click photos to enlarge.
