There’s nothing better than having a soak after a long day of work. These Japanese monkeys know that, too!
In winter, wild monkeys in Jigokudani Yaen-koen park enjoy having a bath in the hot spring. The wild monkey park is located at an altitude of 850 metres in the north of Nagano prefecture where the temperature gets as below as minus 10 degrees Celsicus during the winter. The park built an open-air bath to offer monkeys a break from the cold weather.
Visitors can see the monkeys relaxing in the hot spring between November and March. For more information, please go to: www.jigokudani-yaenkoen.co.jp/english/html/top_e.htm
