Monkeying Around At Jigokudani Monkey Park - Japan

5 years ago

Jigokudani Monkey Park is part of Joshinetsu Kogen National Park in Japan. The word Jigokudani means "Hells Valley" in Japanese, due to the steam and the hot water that comes out of the crevices in an area that`s quite hostile and cold otherwise. This park is home to about 200 Japanese Macaques or Snow Monkeys as some like to call them. The monkeys are wild so they advise visitors to not touch them or eat food near them. They spend much of the colder months in the valley near the hot springs and forage for food in other parts of the park in the warmer months. I am a big animal lover and would love to visit here during the winter months. Look how chilled and relaxed they look in the hot springs. That looks like the life. I am not going to lie I want to pet the one in picture 4, he/she looks so soft haha.

Have you ever visited hot springs before and taken a dip in some?
Are you are relaxed as the monkeys sitting in the springs in picture 1?
