Hanging out

Japan is so closely associated with hi-tech that it's easy to forget that Japan has its fair share of unusual wildlife. Many people never see it because it rarely ventures into the cities.

The other day, we were driving to Kakunodate, an old samurai village in Akita Prefecture, when we saw this guy climbing up the railing of an overpass. He then proceeded to hang out, watching the traffic go by. I guess mountain life was getting too boring for him, so he came down to see what rest of us monkeys were up to.

I made the driver stop the car so I could get out and capture this rare moment.
