    I worked at Jigokudani monkey park for 3 months researching their behaviour, and studied macaques in Japan for a year.
    I made some friends with guides at the park and others, and apparently monkeys had been spotted in completely different areas of Nagano bathing in peoples private hot springs, super far from the park. No one had them tagged so they weren't sure whether they were monkeys from the park or just random monkeys that had discovered the behaviour on their own, but nonetheless interesting.
    Japanese macaques do have a lot of interesting cultural behaviours; bathing, food washing, stone handling.
    Also, if you get the chance to go study in Japan for whatever reason, don't hesitate, it's amazing

      @Juri It was actually a research internship at a University! Applied on my own and submitted my research idea, they accepted and got back to me about it. I'm from the UK, so I don't think erasmus really exists anymore for us (does it? I've already graduated now so), but at the time I did have friends who also went to Japan on erasmus/ exchange programs with some Japanese universities.
      For me, the internship was much better because I got to stay for longer than erasmus/ exchange students and got to do what I wanted.

    I visited South Korea a few years ago and took the DMZ tour. One of the stops was the North Korean tunnels (they dug them to infiltrate spies, etc), and it looked kinda like this tunnel... More importantly, I pretty much looked exactly like Connor at 8:08 after the climb out.

    honestly this now my favorite video from your channel. it wasn't even about japan that made it good to me. I used to live in Utah for most of my life and there's alaways good amount of snow for almost half a year at times. so seeing this videos with all the snow and mountians made it very home like to me. In short im very home sick.

      @A.Jordan Yes, he did say he wasn't 100% straight. I think his love of JoJo made him question his sexuality. Something tells me he hasn't acted upon it though.

      @JuriAmari something like sexuality is a spectrum and that he's not 100% straight.
      That's like bi? Right? Or maybe someone who just welcomes anything

    Visiting the snow monkeys is a must do (in winter). We've been 3 times and twice we had the same experience as Chris and CDawg. The last time we went though it wan't snowing as much and no monkeys got in the water. Still plenty running around and looking cute though. Pity it was this trip I chose to video the experience though 😂😂

      @PotTheThird Same. As Chris was winding things up, I was thinking "Surely there's at least 10 minutes to go." Maybe the video needed a proper climax, e.g. end with the snow monkeys instead of the disappointing bath.
