A Day of Monkeys

A a little over a year me and my family took our first family trip to Japan, we visited Japan for two weeks. During our two weeks in Japan we visited Tokyo and Kyoto. Our time in Kyoto was very relaxed, we wanted to enjoy the natural beauty of the city and its surroundings. Because of that we did not want to spend our days running around doing a million things, but instead to do a few amazing things.

We stumbled upon this amazing place where we could take our son and ourselves to see wild monkeys. This place is very accessible from the center of Kyoto as well. Below are some of our pictures of our trip to the Arashiyama Monkey Park Iwatayama
(嵐山モンキーパークいわたやま).

Not only can you feed monkeys and somewhat play with them in a very well controlled protected area, but you can enjoy the natural beauty of the mountain and take in a great few of Kyoto at the same time.

Looking forward to posting some more great memories from our time in Japan soon!
