16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Japanese Snow Monkeys

Jigokudani is home to the famous Jigokudani snow monkeys in Japan, situated in the valley of Yokoyu River. After a 1 1/2 hour hike up through the woods, we embarked on a natural "onsen" where we were able to observe these beautiful creatures bathe and play.
