See cute monkeys up close while enjoying a wonderful view at the park
The entrance to the Arashiyama Monkey Park Iwatayama is located near the Arashiyama Togetsukyo Bridge, one of Arashiyama’s popular tourist destinations. A lookout featuring a complete view of Kyoto’s cityscape can be reached within a 20-minute walk from the entrance. Around 130 Japanese monkeys roam around this spot and you can get up close to the monkeys. You can also feed them from inside the Rest Hut. Both adult and baby monkeys can be seen at the park and they are all cute. All of the monkeys are wild, but they are used to humans, so as long as you follow the rules, you will be safe.
