Wild primates are monkeying around in Kyoto, but tourists who have been attacked are not amused.
According to Kyoto officials, 30 people, most of whom were foreign visitors, have been attacked by monkeys since February, with many being bitten or scratched.
According to city officials, a tourist was bit by a monkey at the Fushimi Inari Taisha shrine, renowned for a large number of vermillion torii gates in its grounds, on Feb. 14.
From then on, until April 18, 30 people have fallen victim to such bad monkey behavior. They were attacked by what is believed to be parent monkeys as they attempted to feed and take pictures of younger monkeys.
Starting from April, Kyoto city and prefectural police have handed out fliers to tourists and temples and shrines, which warn "Beware of monkeys!" in Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean.
City officials have patrolled the areas where attacks have occurred and driven the monkeys away by shouting when they see one.
