When the temperature drops in the winter, the Japanese Snow Monkeys go to their private hot spring. Bathing in the warm water is the monkey's way to protect themselves against the extreme cold during the winter. Don't we all wish there's a hot spring that's only a hop, skip and a jump away during the cold front? Alas, this one is located in Jigokudani Yaen-Koen (Hell Valley Wild Monkey Park) in northern Nagano, Japan. At least we can now watch the monkeys at the hot springs LIVE.

If you don't have the opportunity to fly to Japan or wish to climb 2788 feet to where the park is located and where the temperature can be 50 degrees Farenheit below freezing, you can sit in the comfort of your home and visit the Snow Monkeys through Google Street View's 360-degree angle.

Or, check out the live action through the Jigokudani Yaen-Koen's live webcam. But beware of all the human primates blocking your view:
