Surrounded by Monkeys under almost 100F!

Real Kyoto summer seemed to began with almost 100F humid weather. Kyoto Gion Festival is now under way with a climax of the Parade this coming Sunday. Gion Festival is one of three most famous and largest festivals in Japan.

Our afternoon trip was to climb up Mt. Iwata where monkeys (Nihon-zaru) enjoy living. We were in a cage to feed some apple pieces to monkeys!

Many baby monkeys were very cute and every student had fun with them!
