The kids jumping around (Jigokudani Yaen-Koen/地獄谷野猿公苑)

Even the day was cold, temperature of this day was -6 degrees in Celsius, 21 degrees in Fahrenheit, the kids were playing around joyfilly.


The monkeys in this area have childbirth on April.
As April is a period that warm season starts, it is good for starting child rising.




Since eight or nine months had passed, the kids grown quite big.



It is said that the first monkey who went in the hot spring was a kid monkey.


As the kid monkey knew the hot spring warms himself during a winter time, soon whole monkeys in the troop knew it.

At the beginning, the monkeys were in the nature hot springs, but since human knew their behavior, created artificial hot springs to observe them.


Now we can see the monkeys this close.


Kids were running around really near to human.




The kids seemed so fluffy.



It is still cold here in Japan, but getting warm these days.
The next winter, they will become bigger and grown up.

I want come back to this place again, and meet them.

Thank you for reading!
Have a good weekend!!
