Monkeys in Hot Spring

Image
From snowing northern part of Hokkaido to sub-tropical southern islands of Okinawa and everything in between, Japan enjoys various forms of environment despite its compact national territory, and that circumstance resulted in plenty of unique animals and plants endemic to the remarkable country. The Nihon-zaru (Monkeys in Japan) is one of the unique species and adopt themselves with the environment. Usually, monkeys are found in sub-tropical zones, the Nihon-zaru, however, reside in the northern part of Japan and enjoy natural hot spring in the region.
