monkey love 猿の愛 (inuyama, japan)

Year of the monkey, indeed!
Heartwarming monkeys embracing one another-- their affectionate expressions seem so human to me. Taken at Inuyama Monkey Park (犬山モンキーパーク) in just over the boarder in Aichi Prefecture. Located quite close to Inuyama Castle, one of the few suriving "original" castles (i.e. not destroyed during war) in Japan.
