  1. I saw an NHK reporter and crew seemingly almost successfully catch that Saru Chan…was hilarious watching it on the evening news last nite!!!!

  2. That’s weird, Rich! If and when you find out how the monkey got there, send out a tweet, because I’m pretty interested in the very odd story that absolutely must accompany such a strange thing hah.

    Man, you’re blog is a constant reminder of how unbearably boring Texas is!

    PS: You should totally make a new vidcast / podcast soon!

  3. I don’t think they’ll ever figure out how the monkey ended up so deep inside Tokyo. Maybe he’s a forward scout for an oncoming invasion.

    It’s not as if Shibuya is anywhere near any forests or known monkey habitats, and there haven’t been any reports of this monkey being seen elsewhere in Tokyo until he showed up at the station, so his sudden appearance is truly bizarre.

    I think it would be nice if every station in Tokyo had a monkey.

  4. Aw poor little monkey. They must’ve been so scared. What happened to the little monkey? Did they send them to a zoo or something? Hopefully they’re safe now and not scared. 🙂

  5. Emily, the monkey escaped the police dragnet and is still on the loose as far as I know. I haven’t checked the news lately for any new monkey sightings in Tokyo.
