The country's northernmost zoo attracts a huge number of visitors, from Japan and overseas, with its unique interactive viewing facilities. Located in Asahikawa City in the middle of Hokkaido, the zoo has created a variety of facilities inducing natural behaviors of each animal, instead of just "showcasing" them.
Visitors in the glass dome in the middle of enclosure can see polar bears rushing toward them. The orangutan trapezes and the walk-through penguin aquarium enable you to watch their active behaviors. The zoo is very clean and barely smells, making "the viewers smile all the time".

This is a must go!!! The penguins are so cute!!! My grown up children love it! Do go to the Asahiyama Snow Village for some rides and learn how to ski or snow boarding, it was the cheapest ever ! The ski is suitable for first timer to learn and for family with children! Food there are cheap too!

One of the greatest zoo I has visited in my life. There are not much of species, but some species is quite rare to see. The penguin was amazingly cute, the red panda also interesting. Another animal I really enjoy to see is polar bear and grey wolf, I never seen it before. They are taking care of animal very well and the way they build the cage is amazing. Likes you can observed the penguin and hippopotamus from under the cage. Must visit attraction is Asahikawa.

Great zoo, all the animals looks very healthy. The facilities is good. And the restaurants have a reasonable price. Great experience to see cute walking penguins. Must go if you visit Asahikawa.

One of the greatest zoo I have ever visited. It is relatively small which is perfect for non locals. Animals and the zoo appear to be very well maintained.
