Trained monkeys show 伝統芸能ですが

The other day, I visited Nagaoka Tenmangu Shrinewhere bright red azalea flowers were at their best.  Since it was in the middle of the early-May holiday season in Japan, I found so many visitors to the shrine.  And to my surprise, I also found a monkey trick show!  I was impressed with it and thought it was one of the Japanese traditional performing entertainment shows.

I am afraid this performing art of long tradition must be condemned by international animal welfare organizations, though.

Monkeys trained to do tricks/

So sad/

Look like humans/
