The Japanese macaque is an Old World monkey native to Japan.  Those  living in the north of Japan, where snow covers the ground many months of the year, they’re  called “Snow Monkeys”.  They can also  be found in a range of forested habitats of  lush evergreen forests in the South.

Interesting Japanese Macaque Facts

  1. Macaque Monkeys are the only native monkey species found in Japan, they are also the only monkey species in the world found this far north, often living in freezing temperatures.

  2. Their thick, dense coats and ability to huddle together and find warm spots allows the Macaque to survive in temperatures few other mammals can tolerate, as low as -4 below zero.

  3. Macaque Monkeys love to play in the snow!  Young snow monkeys have been observed rolling up snowballs, then pushing them down hills for fun.  Others gather lumps of snow in a ball and carry them around proudly, sometimes to the envy of other monkeys who try to steal it.  Adults occasionally join this playtime fun!.

  4. In areas where snowfall is heavy, Japanese macaques will spend as much time foraging for food as possible. However, in order to stay warm, they find sunny areas or hot springs to warm themselves up in for hours.  Only high ranking males and females are allowed to bathe, though!

  5. Japanese macaques generally sleep in trees thick with leaves protecting them from rain and snow.  The most dominant individuals will take the best protected positions.

  6. The bare, bright coloured face of a Japanese macaque exaggerates their facial expressions allowing them to communicate more effectively with one another.

  7. When found in the same habitat, Japanese macaques and sika deer seem to congregate together. The sika deer follow the monkeys as they forage in the trees eating any leaves or fruit dropped by the monkeys, and also provide extra sets of eyes watching for predators. They have also been seen riding on the backs of the Sika deer!

  8.  A Japanese macaque named ‘Imo’ was observed washing dirt from potatoes in rivers.  Soon other members of the group followed and they also washed food in the sea, also adding salt to their diet.  As a result of their obvious intelligence, the Japanese macaque has been involved in many studies from researchers concerning neuroscience.

  9. Female Japanese macaques will rarely leave the group into which they are born. They therefore spend their entire lives together and create very strong bonds.

  10. The main natural predators to Japanese macaques, especially to the young, are Mountain Hawk-Eagles.  The macaques will shrilly call whenever a large shadow flies over them to help warn each other of a possible predator attack.

  11. During cold weather, Japanese macaques huddle together to keep warm. When temperatures grow even colder, the huddle size increases, spreading more body warmth to the group.

  12. Recent studies suggest they develop different ‘accents’ based upon their regional groups, similar to human culture.  Macaques troops that were separated by hundreds of miles, were found to have different pitches to their calls and range of vocalizations. 

  13. While typically an alpha male will lead the group, a female named ‘Yakei’ was documented by researchers taking leadership of her troop at Takasakiyama Natural Zoological Garden in 2021.  She overthrew the dominant males of the time, and displaced her own mother. Her large large troop consisted of 677 macaques!

  14. Macaques were a vulnerable species until the early 20th century.  Their populations have now recovered and are classified as of ‘least concern’ by the ICUN.
