One of the things I really wanted to do in Japan was hang out with monkeys.
One thing I really wanted to do in Japan was go to an onsen (natural hot spring).
Why not do both at the same time?
A bit outside of Nagano is a monkey park. It was covered in snow, and pretty cold, so the monkeys would chill out in the onsen. The monkeys were... well... monkeys. They did normal monkey stuff. Grooming their hair, eating bugs, yelling, fucking each other. Good stuff.
Monday I went skiing. I have much more skill as a skiier. Not mad skillz, but the kind of skills where I don't fall all the time. Except when the fog is 2 foot visibilty and I accidently go down a double black diamond. I fell then. It wasn't cool.
