The monkeys look pretty miserable walking around on concrete and folks throwing random food at 'em, which most likely isn't too good for their digestive system to be eating processed food. All in all, not worth the visit just to be passive in not supporting...More

To find this Venue is not easy, but when I look at the attraction is not my expectation, I only see some monkey with red nose play at a little pool....and the small hut nearby as botanical garden... Not worthed.

Not worth travelling all the way to watch monkeys bathing in onsen. The monkeys are kept and not wild. There is a small bontanic garden but nothing much in there too. So boring watching the monkeys in an enclosed place. There were no other visitors...More
