It is funny and you probably would need to experience it once in your life. Like a 1980 tv show with monkeys :) live. I felt it is being overpriced though. In a closed theatre and you could take photos of the monkeys too.

To me Kawaguchiko is not much to offer other than MT Fuji. The side attractions are there but do not promise much on their own strength. Monkey theatre is one such travel spot, built on the backing of just two monkeys and their hyperactive and...More

Fun monkey show! Although in japanese they have subtitles of the monkeys acts. It can get very crowded as it's a popular attraction, so make sure you ask at your hotel if there is seating for a specific time. Show times are every hour and...More

There were just five of us in the crowd. Monkeys seemed like they didn't want to perform--angry and reluctant.

While staying at Mt. Fuji, we shopped, ate, visited the lake, and THEN, we went here... very good. The gift stores and grounds were very neat too... we loved it all. These little "actors" are very smart, obedient, and talented. Very strong, and they can...More
