Yumiko and I are here in Japan for a photographic adventure. Our first stop after visiting family and friends in Tokyo is here in Yudanaka where the snow monkeys live. We were lucky that just before we got here it snowed, however today it is 65 degrees outside. Ugh... In fact it is so warm the monkeys are not going into the hot spring. The temperature outside is warmer than the hot spring. But that has not deterred my passion for photographing these beautiful creatures. Here are a few of my favorites so far.
