It’s Chinese New Year today and the beginning of the Monkey year in the Chinese Zodiac. Happy Chinese New Year!

It’s the first day of the Lunar New Year. This year, it’s the year of the Monkey, according to the Chinese zodiac.

We took the photo when our family visited Jigokudani in Nagano back in 2008 to see the unique Snow Monkeys that indulge in the natural hotsprings there amidst the Winter snow.

It was a most interesting experience as we watched these human-like primates enjoy themselves in the onsen, swimming around, grooming each other, or simply enjoy the warmth of the water – taking a respite from the frigid temperatures of the Winter snow and chilly air.
