This is also known as Mount Takasaki Monkey Park. It features hundreds of monkeys living free in an area where they are fed and cared for in order to prevent them taking farmers crops. It is a fun place with announcements in English and Japanese.

Great place monkeys everywhere some of them get a little aggressive but the staff run them off very quickly. Dont touch the monkeys but sometimes they will touch you. The park is very cheap about 500 yen per person and worth every penny.
