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.

  • Did not expect too much, but very interesting keeper's description, were drawn. Or the monkey girl I'm in love with the man, too much hassle look of bad bosses (that is respected, I think, the monkeys should not), there is a monkey in the world, I'm. Feeding time to spread the legs and standing monkey who go through between the legs one after the other. Crotch and jumping through hoops to say monkey passed, people who buy lottery tickets?, the child goes through at a speed wow the child through slowly and we had character, interesting.
