Takasakiyama Nature Zoo, Oita
(4.1/5 based on 240 reviews on the web)
Observe a monkey feeding frenzy at Takasakiyama Nature Zoo, a spot at the foot of Mount Takasaki where humans feed monkeys in order to get some peace. Farmers could not get rid of these animals, so they decided to start feeding them regularly, making the zoo a temporary home for whole tribes of free mountain monkeys. Watch and you might see a mama monkey delousing her offspring, or baby monkeys testing their strength as they play. You can ride on the monorail service, dubbed the "kids' monkey rail," offering scenic views of the mountain. The place makes a cheap and fun trip for a whole family, and lies some 3 km (1.6 mi) from Beppu city, or 10 km (6 mi) from Oita. Put Takasakiyama Nature Zoo on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Oita trip itinerary builder.

  • I went to the Mt. Takasaki natural park in a long time. Did not know was a monorail. Venice Hill is a lame leg, because it could return. And now doth 1500 head position in Group B and Group C was. Thing with great acting and a monkey through the crotch, knees apart so hard, I have been waiting for the next could bypass. Forget watching the boss monkey baby monkey, including the passage of time.
