Photo Journal: Making way for the monkey

A sheep and monkey are brought face-to-face at Tsutenkaku Tower in Osaka on Dec. 28 for an event marking the change from the Chinese zodiac's Year of the Sheep in 2015 to the Year of the Monkey in 2016. In a dialogue filled with sheep and monkey puns, Masaaki Nishigami, the president of Tsutenkaku Kanko Co., which operates the tower, and the monkey's trainer, Mami Kanemitsuya, called for the "baaad" problems of 2015 to be left behind to make 2016 a year free of "monkey business."
