Story & Recommendation
Get up close and personal with cute monkeys and enjoy a beautiful mountain top view
The Arashiyama Monkey Park Iwatayama is a mountain top lookout that’s home to around 130 Japanese macaque monkeys.
From the entrance near the Arashiyama Togetsukyo Bridge, one of the area’s most popular spots, to the lookout, you’re looking at about a 20-minute walk. At the top, in addition to the super cute monkeys, you’ll be greeted by a stunning panorama of Kyoto’s sprawling cityscape.
While you can’t pet any of the monkeys, as despite their friendliness, they are still in fact wild, you can try feeding them inside the rest hut at the top of the mountain.
You’ll see both adult and baby monkeys, which are just downright adorable. However, no matter what you do, don’t forget to follow the rules and keep a safe distance from them.

We recommend visiting the park in the morning when the monkeys are hungry. The park is very crowded during spring, fall, and Golden Week(at the end of April and the beginning of May). Please plan accordingly.
