Awaji Island Monkey Center (淡路島モンキーセンター)

"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

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
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.

秋は猿が山に帰ってしまい出現率が5%と言われてましたが、なんと沢山の猿と鹿がいました‼️子供の猿が何匹もいて、凄く可愛いです。みんな、足を伸ばしてノミ取りしてます。とても可愛いです。

コロナのせいか人が少なく、平日だったせいもあり、ゆっくり中を見学出来ました。
今の時期は子猿がたくさん居て写真を撮る為に近寄るとお父さんらしき猿に歯を見せられておこられました。家族を守っててすてきでした。

          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.
