Wild monkey takes up residence in Tokyo

Despite the efforts of Tokyo's finest, a wild monkey has been cavorting through Tokyo since late last month.

First sighted April 30 in Shibuya Ward, the monkey has traveled about 15 kilometers north through five wards and is now making mischief in a residential neighborhood of Akabane, Kita Ward.

Even Japanese macaques want a taste of the uptown living. Who can blame them?
