Monkeys plague Sakamoto, Otsu

Wild Japanese monkeys have been invading residential areas in Sakamoto in western Otsu, making a mess of backyard gardens. Saikyoji temple‘s cemetary is also a favorite spot for the monkeys where they eat flowers and edible offerings.

The city of Otsu announced that they captured 29 of the monkeys by March 26, 2008. Based on Mt. Hiei, the group of monkeys had numbered over 40.
