Enjoy an outing to Asahiyama Zoo, which makes up for its small size in the variety of animal species sheltered there. Wildlife includes penguins, seals, leopards, polar bears, wolves, and red pandas. You can also step into the role of the "prey" at a glass dome, which puts the observer at eye level with wolves and polar bears.

Asahiyama Zoo Reviews
年齢を忘れて、時間が過ぎて行く不思議な世界。 動物の見れない肉球を見たり、狼の遠吠えを聴いたり、人間にこれでもかとサービスをする姿。 見ているだけで癒しを受けと思わず口許がほころぶ。 何度訪れても、感じる思いはいつも変わらない場所。 more »A strange world where time passes, forgetting your age.

While the Penguin Walk is the biggest highlight of this zoo, there are also many other attractions here too. Highly recommend the snowy owls. If you are a Harry Potter fan, you would love them a lot. The time when I was there, they didn't really move much. One was camouflaged in the snow on the ground while the other was resting gracefully on a branch. It was such a peaceful scene and it was fun just to see them turning only their heads with their bodies stationary, scrutinizing the visitors around them.
Must go for the penguin walk. Queue up early for the 940am bus cus it's packed! Don't worry if u miss it though. The penguin walk starts at 11am but they take a good 40min to complete their walk so just be there by then. If u can't there's still the afternoon one, though not in late Feb to Mar. Have fun!
