... and it was a short walk to the capsule hotel. I couldn't find it at first because it was on the 2nd floor of a building. Once found the checkin was fast and easy and i made my way to my capsule to unpack my stuff and get a well deserved shower. Since the shower was in the public bathroom and it's considered very rude to splash water you have to sit down to take a shower there. Awkward but still very nice to have a decent shower after 2 days of hiking.

Wonderful walk up to ...

... as they moved around, getting the chance to be very close to them. I really enjoyed watching the baby monkeys as they were really cute. They tend to stay close to their mums and liked to hitch rides around on their backs or fronts. We couldn't believe how human like they were, they have proper hands and fingers just like us. They loved to go for a swim in their little onsen and we even watched one holding his breath and staying under water for ages. We ...
