bucketlistmap This incredible photo was taken by Daisuke tashiro at Jigokudani Yaenkoen (or Snow Monkey Park) in Japan.

The park was opened in 1964 to protect the monkeys of this region who were attracted to the area because of the many natural hot springs here.
Nowadays the monkeys are accustomed to visitors and pretty much ignore them, meaning visitors can enjoy watching the natural behaviour and interactions of these fascinating creatures!

silkholidays Japanese Macaque, also known as #snowmonkey due to the cold climate of their living areas. Snow monkeys are absolutely intelligent species. They learned how to wash foods with clean river water. They also have the habit of #bath together in hot springs and roll snowballs for #fun.

jakehoganphoto Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park. Japan. 2014. So worth the big hike up the hill, an amazing place to observe them in a mostly natural environment, that they are free to leave. 1mon
