I recommend everyone to visit these monkeys in Nagano, they are a real treat to see. You can get very close to them and they don't seem bothered at all.

Went there a year ago with my daughter. Really enjoyed it, until I realized that this monkeys don't have any fangs! So, if the caretakers pull these out,what else do they do, to keep the animals tame?

Happiness is a warm mama. Happiness is a warm bath. Who said we like living in the snow?

Man, these monkeys are really living the good life! Nothing like a nice hot spring here in the mountains of Japan!

I always wonder what happens to them when they get out.

Frozen fur?
