Continued... Day Trip to Arashiyama (Kyoto) 3 of 3

Here's your chance to get up close and personal with these Japanese wild monkeys 
in Iwatayama Monkey Park. At least 170 of them roam freely in this park.
To reach the top, one must walk up approximately 150 steps that takes around 30 minutes.
 The hike up the mountain well worth the trip!

Cheeky monkeys waiting to be fed.

Don't forget to get your brochure stamped and
buy yourself some monkey food for JPY 100 a pack.
Now let's start feeding the monkeys!

Monkey lollies!

Some really good views of Kyoto from the top of the mountain.

Stopped for a quick lunch at this restaurant, sorry I do not have it's English name.
It's located near Oigawa River just before you cross the bridge to Monkey Park.

Choose your order and pay for the tickets. 
Grab yourself a table and wait to be served.
