We went to a monkey sanctuary in Kyoto thinking it would be pure magic but had pretty much the same experience you did. Turns out that fearless, grabby, aggressive monkeys are kind of terrifying.

Those statues are great, though!


i love monkeys but i'd have to agree with you--toothy monkeys who are unafraid of humans seem a bit frightening. beautiful pictures, as always!


I went here, too. These monkeys freaked me out. I thought I was going to make it out of the forest without incident. Nope! One jumped on me for a few seconds. He was quick. I was a little shocked. I think I'll bypass this place if I ever get a chance to visit Bali again. :)

See, you guys, I think we're the sane ones. :-) Thanks!

Now I know both to avoid Kyoto's monkey sanctuary and how lucky we were in Bali to avoid getting jumped on!
