AUTUMN (SEP – NOV)

mainimage-6

In autumn the mating season starts for the snow monkeys. The mating as well as the abundance of food found up in the mountains make it less attractive for the monkeys to come all the way down to the Jigokudani Park. There might be days in autumn with no monkeys in the Snow Monkey Park. The monkeys are wild animals and and can’t be moved to do something they don’t want to do. So while they will show up most days, the food in the forest is just too good to ignore sometimes.

However, don’t let the fickle monkeys hold you back from coming to Snow Monkey area during autumn, because this season is alight with color. You will see some of the brightest reds and yellows in this period.
