Monkeys’ park in Mt.Iwata ,Arashiyama

Going trekking in an uneven slope for almost 25 minutes from the west side of Togetsu Bridge will take us to the top of Mt. Iwata where is the home of monkeys
native to Japan.


It becomes popular for tourists from abroad because it's really fun to interact
with them at a close distance in Kyoto city.
We can feed peanuts to them from inside the tea house.
Some staffs might take pictures of both you and the monkeys.

“ Great guide who showed us hard to reach sights ”

We had a great day with Takehiko (Zumi-san). We left the itinerary up to him as we had previously seen some of the more easily accessible Kyoto sights.

Zumi-San was very helpful. We had a little confusion as to the area of the meeting place but once we had it sorted out, Zumi-san was the perfect aide. He helped us with our luggage cart and even guided us when we got our rail pass. We also hired Zuni-San for our shuttle to back to the airport and everything went smoothly.

When we arrive at Kansai Airport on the 8th of April, Zumi was waiting for us with a placard of my name. He gave us some information on where to go, etc. He's also on time when we are departing on the 16th. He arrived at our apartment at exactly 6am and drove us to Kansai Airport. Thank You, Zumi!
