Kyoto monkeys

In Arishiyama, north west Kyoto, there is a park where the wild macaque monkeys come for monkey nuts. It is worth visiting as they are pretty oblivious to people which makes it an interesting place to study their behaviour. Further up the hill there is a quieter area where they groom each other so disturb them at your own peril, and they advise people not to stare at them as they consider it aggressive.
