Observe a monkey feeding frenzy at Takasakiyama Nature Zoo, a spot at the foot of Mount Takasaki where humans feed monkeys in order to get some peace. Farmers could not get rid of these animals, so they decided to start feeding them regularly, making the zoo a temporary home for whole tribes of free mountain monkeys. Watch and you might see a mama monkey delousing her offspring, or baby monkeys testing their strength as they play. You can ride on the monorail service, dubbed the "kids' monkey rail," offering scenic views of the mountain. The place makes a cheap and fun trip for a whole family, and lies some 3 km (1.6 mi) from Beppu city, or 10 km (6 mi) from Oita.

Takasakiyama Nature Zoo Reviews
10月1日に行きましたが、秋で山にエサがあるため餌付け場に猿が不在の様でした。丁度雨も降ってきたので入場せず。看板も出ていて、猿博物館？の係りの人と話しましたが、非常に申し訳なさそうにしていました。 秋に訪問される方は事前に確認する事をお勧めします more »I went there on October 1st, but there was food in the mountains in autumn, so there was no monkey in the feeding place. It's raining, so I didn't enter. There's a signboard out there, too, monkey museum? I talked to the person in charge of the, but i was very sorry. If you are visiting in the fall, we recommend that you check in advance.
たくさんの猿をみることができ、えさやりの時間は猿の迫力に後ずさりするほどすごい迫力だと感じました。毛づくろいする猿の姿には癒されました。 more »I was able to see a lot of monkeys, and I felt that the time of feeding was so powerful that it was able to back down to the power of the monkey. I was healed by the sight of a grooming monkey.
