There are lessons to be learned from these soulful snow monkeys (video)

Watch these beautiful Japanese macaques at Wild Snow Monkey Park who have truly mastered the fine art of relaxation.

Most of us have probably seen photos before of the Japanese macaques – otherwise known as snow monkeys – soaking in a steamy bath. The images are striking for the beauty of the landscape, of course, but also in just how completely relatable these monkey are. What human doesn’t love sitting in a natural hot spring?

That said, I’ve often wondered what’s going on with these monkeys. What are they doing in there?

These smart and super social animals live on three of Japan’s four main islands, notes Jasper Doest, a photographer who has spent a lot of time with the animals. They live farther north than any other nonhuman primate. The steamy scenes we’ve become familiar with are photographed at Jigokudani Yaen-koen, or, Wild Snow Monkey Park.

At half a mile above sea level, the habitat is harsh – cold and snowy. But while the air may be well below freezing, the natural springs are over 100F degrees, giving the monkeys a warm and soothing refuge.

“Relaxed by the steamy warmth of the water, the monkeys often fall asleep while bathing,” says Doest.

The monkeys are free to come and go, and the spectacle of it all draws troves of people from all over the world. “It’s not a zoo,” notes Doest, “the macaques are still wild animals – but with so many visitors it almost feels like one.”

You can see some of Doest’s beautiful photos at National Geographic, and in the meantime watch this meditative short film by filmmaker Art Gimbel. It is such a good reminder to slow down, relax, and when the weather gets cold … amble on down to the hot springs and take a warm dip. Bonus points if you become so relaxed that you fall asleep sitting up.

  24. Hi there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

    My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4.

    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve
    this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.

    Cheers!

  25. Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  26. I have seen plenty of useful items on your web site about computers. However, I’ve got the opinion that laptop computers are still more or less not powerful adequately to be a good option if you normally do jobs that require a great deal of power, just like video modifying. But for website surfing, word processing, and many other prevalent computer work they are perfectly, provided you never mind the screen size. Thank you for sharing your notions.

  27. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal.
    I must say you’ve done a superb job with this. In addition,
    the blog loads super quick for me on Opera. Excellent Blog!

  28. Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a
    similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam feedback?
    If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any assistance
    is very much appreciated.
