Exploring Kyoto’s Mountain-top Monkey Park Heather Bond May 11 Japan, Kyoto, Sidelines This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure. Monkeying around in Kyoto Â©FarrahK12 High in the hills of Kyoto, Japan lies a little-known tourist draw–a monkey park. Kyoto’s Arashiyama district is home to the Iwatayama Monkey Park. Getting there involves a bit of a hike up Mount Arashiyama, where a community of Japanese macaque monkeys awaits. The park has everything a semi-urban monkey would love: a koi pond, breathtaking views of Kyoto and lots of visitors with snacks (snack bags can be purchased at the park for Â¥100; admission is Â¥500). Interested in meeting the monkeys up close? Read one visitor’s account of the park at Huffington Post.
