Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park

First post.  This is a test really, because I am only trying to figure out how this works.  So, a little about the picture … while I was living in Japan I visited the Jigokudani Snow Monkey Park in Nagano Prefecture.  I originally saw pictures like this on Pinterest, and thought it would be an amazing experience.  I wasn’t disappointed! :) My husband took the picture above, and I edited it.  I’m slightly jealous he was able to capture this picture >.> but! I’m happy he got it :) When we first arrived at the park, we had to hike a ways to get to where the snow monkeys hung around.  It was a beautiful hike through snow covered woods. When you finally reach the area where the monkeys were, you paid to get through and you were able to see the monkeys.  They were not afraid of us, in fact they weren’t afraid to warn you that you were getting uncomfortably close! The opportunity for amazing pictures was all around! If you are ever in the area I would highly recommend you visit this park.  It was only ¥1000 (about $10), so it’s a pretty cheap visit :)Well, this ends my test :]
