It is funny and you probably would need to experience it once in your life. Like a 1980 tv show with monkeys :) live. I felt it is being overpriced though. In a closed theatre and you could take photos of the monkeys too.

There were just five of us in the crowd. Monkeys seemed like they didn't want to perform--angry and reluctant.

While staying at Mt. Fuji, we shopped, ate, visited the lake, and THEN, we went here... very good. The gift stores and grounds were very neat too... we loved it all. These little "actors" are very smart, obedient, and talented. Very strong, and they can...More
