There are about 120 snow monkeys at the summit of a mountain in Arashiyama, which are also called “Japanese macaque.” They are native to Japan, and, yes, these are the type of monkeys seen in iconic photos in which they’re bathing at hot springs in winter. Also at the top you can see a view of the city, mountains and river, with a bright blue sky draped over it all on a sunny day. We'll buy a one-dollar food for them and try to feed them!

Ken speaks of the history and culture of Kyoto with a passion that would make you think he’s a lifelong resident of Japan’s historical former capital city.
