Wild Japanese monkeys relax in a hot spring bath at a park in Yamanouchi, Nagano Prefecture. (Mainichi)

At the Jigokudani Yaen Koen in Yamanouchi, Nagano Prefecture, taking a bath in a hot spring is a favorite pastime for the approximately 160 Japanese monkeys living in the park.

Known as “snow monkeys” abroad, visitors — including many foreign tourists — enjoy watching the apes’ relaxed expressions as they are soaking in the outdoor tub. On sunny days, the monkeys are often spotted sunbathing.

The park is open everyday, from around 9 a.m. until around 4:30 p.m. during the winter. Admission is 500 yen for adults and 250 yen for children. ( mdn.mainichi.jp )

Muslim woman reports attack outside Ohio mosque

Muslim woman reports attack outside Ohio mosque – A 20-year-old immigrant from Somalia said someone assaulted her with pepper spray outside an Ohio mosque and told her to leave the country, spurring investigations by police and likely the FBI.

Saida Said said she was in her car running errands when a man in a car followed her to the mosque’s parking lot on the west side of Columbus on Monday afternoon.

Said told reporters the man harassed her, swore at her, said she should leave the country and threatened to kill her. He then attacked her with pepper spray, she said.

Mosque officials called police, who took a report and turned it over to the prosecutor’s office.

The FBI said Tuesday it will likely open a civil rights investigation, the results of which would be turned over to federal prosecutors for any possible charges.

A mosque security camera recorded the encounter. The video, which was shown to reporters, shows the woman pulling into the parking lot, another vehicle pulling in and blocking hers, and then a man getting out and angrily talking to her. The alleged pepper-spraying was not visible, because the woman’s car blocked the camera’s view.

Abdiaziz Abdi, a spokesman for the mosque, said the camera was installed about a year ago because several cars had been vandalized. ( Associated Press )
