Monkey show

Two monkeys and their two trainers

At the shrine festival, I saw a very nice monkey show. There were two monkey handlers and two monkeys, taking turns doing 15 minute shows.

I saw the final of one show, and then stayed for the next show before leaving. The show I saw was very funny. The monkey did a lot of impressive athletic stuff, but what impressed me the most was when the trainer and the monkey did comedy together. That was very well thought out. And funny!
