    ... 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 ...

    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 ...

    ... symbol of Kusatsu. Here, hot water from the spring's origin gushes down wooden channels made from five-centimeter thick pinewood still containing large amounts of resin. Fine quality pinewood or Japanese cypress rich in resin is the optimum choice of material to continuously withstand acidic spring water. This is why many inns still have old, wooden bathtubs made of similar materials. We were just in time to attend the Yumomi performance. To cool off the ...
