Mountains of Sanpoku 2
Not long after the first village we came upon another small village and as we were just leaving it we noticed some movement in a Kaki tree across a rice field and too our surprise there were several wild monkeys devouring the fruit off the tree, it looked like they we having a pretty good time and further along the road we spotted yet another monkey sunbathing on the branch of a tree. It seemed to be a popular spot for monkeys as on the way back along the same road we saw them again and one of the locals passed by stating they have a lot of monkeys around here, which must cause some problems over the winter when their natural food sources are in short supply. Further along the road we came to a scenic spot on a bend in the river where I took the above photo.
