Don’t look them in the eyes!

This is a photo taken on a mountain called Arashiyama in Kyoto, Japan.  This mountain is a Japanese macaque monkey sanctuary.  From the base of the mountain it is 30 minute hike to the top, where you can purchase bags of peanuts and apple slices to feed their troop of over 170 macaques.  These little guys are known for stealing from visitors, so watch out!
