4/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • Only the monkey mountain is a free-range zoo. Quite a few (visible only in the hundreds or more) of monkey, just around the corner, where you can enjoy. Feeding time is recommended. I think it is more fun than Aquarium is located across the road.
