Asahiyama Zoo, Asahikawa

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.

  • Not a big zoo but its enough to spend easily 2-3 hours here. Main attraction is feeding of penguin, polar bear and sea lion. Early December ice is not thick, so no penguin parade show.
  • One of the biggest zoo, perhaps in the world. You can see all sorts of unique animals such as wolves, polar bear, penguins, and seals. There is a designated polar bear feeding time which you can check on their website. The feeding schedule for the day is announced at 10. You can see the polar bear dive for the fish thrown from the platform above. The entrance fee is 870 yen, which is quite cheap. It's very spacious and it'll take you at least a few hours to go through it all.
