More of Sean’s trip during the Obon Holidays.
While we were looking around Arayashima, we took Sean up Iwatayama Mountain to the Monkey Park up there (actually a place of research for university students as well).
Japan was in the middle of a heat wave as you can see by how sweaty my brother gets in the video. Luckily, Sean learns to blend in with the local monkey tribe and become one of them.
These adorable monkeys just patiently stuck their hands through the bars and waited expectantly for the humans to give them food — that you could buy from nearby.
