Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park @ Yamanouchi, Japan - Part 2

My previous post on Jigokudani snow monkey park is only until the entrance to the park. This post will show you the photos that I capture during my trip to the snow monkey park during end of June 2015. As I mentioned in my earlier post, the scenery during winter is much better than during summer. In winter, the monkeys will soak in hot spring water with steam and snow surrounding the site. However, in summer you will have chance to view many baby snow monkey as its their offspring season.
