Night & Day: First Snow for Snow Monkeys 2010-11

A sudden snow fall in Yamanouchi that night, meant a cold but dry night for the animals in forest, and a soundless frozen play ground for visitors to Shigakogen & Jigokudani…

The loneliness of Yudanaka Station glowing against pure white silence,
made my heart throb…

Young friends, the Falconers honed in on each other in what wasn’t much short of snow-ice ball war…after one hit in the leg…a little too close to the danger zone and enough for me..

Interesting to see the snow monkey more interesting in hot morning soup rather than a hot morning swim, dryness an issue?

Life goes on for Yamanouchi…

The natural beauty of a village with no name…I understand the attraction.
