Monkey business and Obuse

... they are used to people and just walk right near you. A treat was seeing 2 of the young ones swimming and playing in the pool, just like little kids. They swim under water and squabble just like human kids. They spend a lot of time grooming each other. We could have stayed all day as they were so entertaining. How do monkeys turn adults into smiling idiots? Took trillions of photos of course. Next stop was the lovely traditional town ...

... salad, pumpkin soup, pork tenderloin and apple compote for dessert. The dessert even came with a special greeting as I had been chatting with my friendly server, Fidea. Fidea was originally from Tanzania, married a Japanese man and has been in Japan now for 19 years. She speaks fluent Japanese and a little English. To make the day even better, the whole meal came to 3,000 yen or about CDN $35, an unbelievable price for the quality of the food and the ...

Snow monkey day

A travel blog entry by ptoj on Oct 03, 2015

Woke early and caught a taxi to Ueno station. JR Shinkansen to Nagano, then electric train on the Nagano dentetsuline to Yudanaka. Walked up to our accomodation - Shimaya. Mr Yumoto is very helpful. He drove us to the snow monkeys, then we walked 1.6 km through the forest to see the monkeys. They were everywhere, little babies, sitting in the hot spring, picking nits from each other and ...

... decorated.
Dinner tonight is in their French restaurant. We are welcomed by an English speaking waiter from Sri Lanka. Knowing he would have English speaking guests, he had kindly translated tonight's menu into English and printed it out for us. The food is surprisingly delicious and beautifully plated, you don't quite expect a French chef in a family type resort in Kusatsu. As it turns out the chef had worked at the embassy in Italy which explains it ...
