When I first heard that there was this kind of a park in Kyoto I really wanted to see it. The park is a bit farther away from the city, but nature you see while arriving to the closest station and walking through the small town to where the park starts is a exciting journey itself. The park is located on a small mountain and it is a bit of a climb but that made it for some reason even more worth it. Once up at the Park it was really fun to see the monkeys and to get to feed them, the staff there is also very nice and helpful, they helped us to get a picture with a monkey.
