Fodor's Review

The tables are turned at this primate reserve where humans enter a cage while the resident monkeys roam free—except when clinging to the cage's fencing to grab peanuts offered by visitors. Scientists at Kyoto University's Primate Research Institute track the movement of these macaques, the most northern monkeys in the world. The trek to the cage takes 20 minutes up a steep paved path. Look for entrance at the southern end of the Togetsukyo Bridge.
