When I lived in Chicago, a hot shower always made me feel better about winter, even if I wasn't sure why I lived in a place where I couldn't feel my toes after a short trek through the snow.
So I understand the joy Japanese macaques must feel when they get a chance to step out of the cold and hop into the hot springs at Jigokudani Monkey Park in Nagano, about 150 miles northwest of Tokyo.
