Asahiyama Zoo (旭川市旭山動物園)

Asahiyama Zoo is a zoo in Asahikawa City. The exhibits allow you to see the expressions of the animals close up and include the penguin enclosure where you can see the penguins swimming as if they are flying through the air from an underwater tunnel that gives a 360° view (at the Penguin Building), the polar bear enclosure where the 300kg giants swim around energetically (at the Polar Bear Building), the seal enclosure where you can watch the distinctive swimming of seals (at the Seal Building), and the beasts of prey enclosure where you can see tigers, lions, leopards and other from various angles (at the Beast Building). The penguin walk held outside in the snow season is also popular.

様々な動物を観察できるだけでなく、園内の季節の移り変わりも含めて楽しむことが出来る、動物園と言えば、真っ先に思い浮かべる動物園でしょう。特に降り頻る雪の中でも活発に動き回る動物を観察できるのは貴重な体験と言えます。
大型だったり、他ではあまり見られないような動物が多いため、触れ合える機会が持てるエリアはそう多くありませんが、広めに誂えた区域の中で悠然と過ごしたり、まず見ることのない脚の裏が見えるし...

          Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
