Mount Takasaki (‚èŽR, Takasakiyama) is a forested mountain just outside of Beppu and home to more than 1500 wild Japanese monkeys. The monkeys are fed regularly by park wardens in order to keep them on the mountain and prevent conflicts with farmers and residents in the neighborhood.

A visit to Takasakiyama Monkey Park is best combined with a visit to the nearby Umitamago Aquarium.
