- Asahiyama Zoo(Asahikawa)
Watching fascinating animal behavior is fun and exciting for both adults and children, which will leave you wanting to come back for more.
One of the most popular tourist spots in northern Hokkaido, Asahiyama Zoo is a pioneer in zoology, with behavioral exhibits to showcase the animals' instincts and actions in their natural state. Feeding time is a popular attraction for visitors to watch the staff deliver food to animals while providing easy to understand explanations about each animal's predatory nature and habit. The feeding schedule is announced daily in the morning.
The zoo also features a variety of seasonal events. In addition to the already well known skywalk of orangutans (tightrope walking) and penguin walk, the Zoo also offers unique interactive events that require advanced reservations, such as Zoo at Night, Personal Zoo Experience, and So Fond of Asahiyama. All of these events have proven to be very popular due to an overwhelming number of reservations. Be sure not to miss a rare chance like this by checking out the availability on the zoo's website.
