Breakfast - Snow Monkey style

We left Nozawa this morning and on the way to Nagano station we detoured to visit the snow monkeys again as Barry and Peter hadn't seen them.  It was early morning when we arrived and the park keeper had thrown some barley or something similar into the snow and their "onsen".  There were many more monkeys than we had seen in the afternoon but they were not interested in relaxing in the onsen.  There were lots of squabbles while the food was being picked out of the snow and in the onsen.  Really their table manners were appalling as you can see from this one.

From there we caught the Shinkansen back to Tokyo and from there to Mishima and now we are in Gotemba.  It was a long day and tomorrow is going to be the same.
