Awaji Island Monkey Center淡路島モンキーセンター

Zoo

"A facility where visitors can watch the Japanese macaques which live in the Kashiwara Mountains on the southeast side of Awaji Island. The facility is located a 40-minute drive on National Route 28 from the Seidan-Mihara interchange on the Kobe-Awaji-Naruto Expressway. The monkeys come down from the mountains each morning around 9:00 and return around 17:00. Particularly in winter when there is little food to be found in the mountains, many monkeys come here looking for something to eat, giving visitors a strong chance of being able to see some. The monkeys get along well with each other and on cold evenings visitors may be able to catch sight of them huddling together in a phenomenon locals call ""saru dango"" (""monkey dumplings""). The season for monkey watching is from December to August."

Review of Awajishima Monkey Center

Reviewed:2017/02/19 great monkey park
our hosts took us to this island and took us to the monkey centre. It was really great experience as they monkeys are pretty chilled and they can only be fed from inside the cage.

思っていたより園内は広く、とっても綺麗な海と空の景色を眺めながら、可愛いお猿さんたちに出会えます。
広いのでいい散歩にもなりました。スニーカーて行った方が良いかも。

          Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture’s main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country’s most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
