See Snow Monkeys Take a Dip in the Hot Spring

The Jigokudani Monkey Park in Nagano is a haven for wild Japanese macaques. Researchers and photographers alike have flocked to this site to see how humans and monkeys share the same spaces up close. There aren't any fences here. The monkeys can be seen in the hot springs all year round, but winter is definitely the most picturesque time of the year.
