About the Picture
Japanese Macaque, also called snow monkey, (in professional terminology: “Macaca fuscata”) – which is native to Japan. Very beautiful monkeys, but they can be also aggressive. So be careful when you meet one of them.
Well, they can be aggressive if you keep an eye contact with them, cause it would be a sign for them that you want to challenge them or something.
Luckily, when photographing them they cannot see your eyes through the lens so I could enjoy watching them, even when he would be looking at me.
Snow monkeys can be found in various places in Japan, there is a famous spot in Nakano where you can enjoy their presence is hot springs, or in Arashiyama, that’s where I found this one.
Arashiyama is a very touristic spot near Kyoto. A beautiful place, famous for its temples, bamboo grove, or those beautiful monkeys.
If you’re travelling to Arashiyama, they can be found in Iwatayama Monkey Park, which is located on top of the mountain.
You can find over 170 snow monkeys living there, so it’s quite a unique thing watching them walking around you, fighting (or playing) with each other and hoping you will share something to eat with them.
Certainly, you can feed them. You can purchase specially designed snacks they can’t wait to receive from you.
