Snow Monkeying Around --- Day 12/35

Walk: Curbside Cafe on Fillmore Street

Distance: 2 miles

Approximately 150 Japanese macaques live in the mountain valleys of the Jigokudani Yaen-koen monkey park in Yamanouchi, Nagano prefecture, Japan. Also called snow monkeys, the wild macaques are well known for spending their winter months keeping warm and relaxing in the waters of a natural hot spring. For years, the park has been a top destination for tourists, and its popularity is now rebounding as Japan has relaxed some of its COVID-19 restrictions.

"I didn't come to this hot spring to have my picture taken all the time."
