Was amazed at how many monkeys there were, and they walk right past you and interact with each other without a care for people walking around. There were literally hundreds of little monkey, the baby ones were the cutest.

It was really cool to see all the monkeys and they were really cute, but when the monkeys didn't behave, the staff hit the monkey with a hat and even kicked the monkey. Don't go!

Whilst we only spent a short time here, the pure experience of going to a mountain to see tonnes and tonnes of monkeys in action is probably worth the ticket price. We were also lucky to visit when the zookeepers were feeding the monkeys and...More

Entry was about 500 Yen and train uphill is 200 Yen extra (but worth it). The 'zoo' is not a big place. Just a small hill you can visit. But it is fun to see so many 'wild' monkeys in all ages and see the...More

What a lovely experience! The natural 'zoo' is situated mountainside, with caretakers who provide food for the two troops of wild monkeys that live in the area. This acts as a natural deterrent between local wildlife and local residents & businesses, who would otherwise find...More
