This village is well laid out and has traditional Japanese residences as they would have been occupied in the past. The grounds are well tended with interesting Banyan trees and some sculptures dotted around. There is even an enclosure of extremely tame cheeky Squirrel monkeys...More

This is a good place to visit. You get to have an encounter with the squirrel monkeys. The japanese houses are original and built 100 yrs ago. Alot 1 hr at least.

It’s a highlight if you have young children. These squirrel monkeys are so cute and very kids friendly. You can buy a bubble of food that cost 200yen each and feed the monkeys. They will be all over you. The destination itself is a cultural...More

The best sight is the monkeyssss! They are so cute and play around with you. Good for family and kids! However that is the only worthy things. You just need to spend 2 hours, more than enough!
