Japanese Macaque Expedition(Kurukuru Sai-mura)

Discover the world’s northernmost-inhabiting monkeys in the mountains of Japan with a local guide

The wild Japanese macaques that inhabit the Shimokita Peninsula are known as the world’s northernmost-inhabiting monkeys. You will be briefed on Japanese macaque ecology, the geography of their habitat, and the lifestyle of locals who live with them, before embarking on a walk through the mountains that goes for 60–90 minutes to search for the macaques. Between December and February when snowfall is frequent, you can track the macaques by looking for their footprints. Enter the mountains in search of wild monkeys with a wildlife surveyor and damage control expert! You will feel as though you’re on a treasure hunt. Guides can speak in simple English.
