Japan III - Snow monkeys of Habuka

The day before we left for Tokyo, we rented a car to visit the Onsen Monkeys of Habuka. 

Here's the path and route that takes us about 20 - 25mins to get to where the decadent monkeys soak in the natural outdoor hot spring. 

Winding and slow laden path.

 This was the inn that was previously in operation until the owner decided to close it and convert this place into a monkey park. 

This guy was perched on a slab of stone in the middle of the hot spring... 

I caught this little one as it emerged from the hot spring.

This zen master should be the alpha male ... he's the biggest and the rest of the monkeys seem frightful of him.
