Dec/1,2020 - May/5, 2021 Hot-Tubbing Monkeys in Hakodate3.5
from 12/1 '20 to 5/5 '21
The Hakodate City Tropical Botanical Garden, located in the Yunokawa Hot Springs area, is home to some 100 free-range Japanese macaques (or snow monkeys). Although the monkeys can be seen enjoying themselves all year round, they are a particular draw for visitors in the colder months, when they can be seen taking a leisurely dip in the hot springs. The monkeys warm themselves in a pool of steaming mineral water from December 1st through the beginning of May. Hakodate is famed for its monkeys, a rare sight with their human-like passion for bathing in the hot springs.

Admission fee is cheap. Can take close look at monkeys in hot spring. Monkey's food is available for sale at the entrance. Fun to buy some and feed the monkeys.
