Two Monkeys Appointed Station Masters At Japanese Train Station

Nehime and Rakan, two baby monkeys, have started 'working' at Hojo-cho station in Hyoto prefecture in a bid to attract more visitors to the line. The monkeys, aged seven months and three months, were dressed in blue uniforms made from traditional local fabrics complete with mini hats before being formally appointed station masters.

The monkeys belong to a local resident who proposed the unusual arrangement in order to help revive the fortunes of the financially troubled railway line.
