Arashiyama Monkey Park

Iwatayama is a monkey park inhabited by a troop of over 170 Japanese macaque monkeys. When we arrived to the park it was snowing, and quite a little hike up to the top. Once you reach the plateau, there is a great view of the city and the monkey’s are everywhere, wild and free. You can purchase food to feed them from the inside of a building. It’s like we become the caged creatures and the monkeys climb on the outside reaching in.
