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
ＪＲ札幌発７時30分発(＝写真)旭川駅まで、さらにバス約40分、朝10時ころ到着。特急券に入園券・バス券をセットにしたきっぷ「旭山動物園きっぷ」(＝写真、6,560円)を活用しました。 ご案内の通り、旭川動物園は動物の行動や生活を見せる「行動展示」という形式をとった動物園として今や全国区的に有名です。 目指すは、神秘的で美しい幻の高原動物ユキヒョウ(＝写真は同園より)です。偶然にも今年7月1... more »From JR Sapporo at 7:30 a.m. (photo) to Asahikawa Station, we arrived at Asahikawa Station for about 40 minutes by bus and about 10:00 a.m. We used the ticket "Kashiyama Zoo Ticket" (photo, 6,560 yen) with the entrance ticket and the bus ticket set for the limited express ticket. As you can see, Asahikawa Zoo is now famous in the whole country as a zoo that takes the form of a "action exhibition" that shows the behavior and life of animals. Our goal is to have a mysterious and beautiful phantom plateau animal, snow leopard (the photo is from the same garden). Coincidentally, The three-and-a-half-month-old Snow Leopard Zyma (pictured) who was born on July 19 this year was very cheerful. Because the movement is quick and active, I cannot take a picture well ( . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

ペンギンのもぐもぐタイムが本当にかわいい♥解説してくれるから余計可愛く見えてきちゃって！ずっと見てられます♥ more »Because the time of the penguin's mogumogu is really cute♥ it looks even more cute! I can watch it all the time♥
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!
