Last stop before returning home, we hiked up to the Monkey Park Iwatayama in Arashiyama, where I got to feed this momma monkey (see the baby at her chest?). It was pouring rain, but that added to the atmosphere, as the mist rolling over the mountains is absolutely breathtaking.

Please note that I'm actually the one in the enclosure in this picture. The monkeys are free to roam the forest as they please. I'm in a rest house where visitors can feed monkeys bits of apple through the fence, and visitors are warned not to interact with the monkeys outside of the rest house.
