We have had 2 busy days; mostly travelling out to Nagano and onto to Yudakana to see the “Snow Monkeys” as this group of Japanese Macaques are known as. It was lovely to get up out of the city and see all the beautiful autumn leaves, distant snow capped mountains and to wander along through an alpine forest. The monkeys were just amazing, wandering around as if the people weren’t there at all! In fact you have to take care not to trip over them. More later,as it is late, but a few photos to show what an amazing day it was.
