Great to see the monkeys up close but obey the rules or the little fellows with steal your bags, cameras etc. Not expensive to buy monkey food and the layout and views are worth the trip alone. The work up was hard work for one...More
We didn't plan to visit the Monkey Park, but as we were so close, we decided to try for it. I am a large woman (250 lbs), but I do have some hiking experience. However, we went on a very hot day. Everyone around was...More
This was a fun side trip that wasn’t too far from where we were staying. The hike up the mountain was a little intense, but it’s not too strenuous. Good exercise :)
The monkeys were adorable. Definitely bring some coins to buy some food to...More
Very fun being around with monkeys, but expect a pretty good hike. Some part of the hike was a little steep, so may not recommend for seniors. My 11 year old did it without much problem. After arriving at the top, there's a beautiful city...More
The hike to the top is beautiful and not that strenuous (keep in mind we were there in winter). I've seen a lot of monkeys during my time in Asia, but these little guys were the best! When you get to the top there are...More
Some might say it is a steep climb,however once you reach the top you will be awarded with fantastic view of Kyoto. Yes,the monkeys are there and you can enjoy watching them but for me the main draw was the view.
The Monkey Park was by far our favorite part of Kyoto. only took 15-30 minutes by train to get there. Be prepared for the hike up the mountain, it may not be suitable for elderly people or small children (unless you want to carry them...More
You have to walk all the way to the top to see the monkeys. But its worth it.

Entry Cost: 550 yen
Dont stare at them in the eye and dont give...More
This is not for those with a dicky ticker. It's about half an hour of walking up a hill. There are very few monkeys to see on the way up. You have to go to the very top where you will see many monkeys. They...More
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and
impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.
I am not sure about New Year's day as it is a National Holiday. However, it is likely open on the other days weather permitting. Kyoto has become a tourist mecca so it can be quite crowded even so we loved the entire area... More
I am not sure about New Year's day as it is a National Holiday. However, it is likely open on the other days weather permitting. Kyoto has become a tourist mecca so it can be quite crowded even so we loved the entire area of Arishyama. Enjoy!
