Create an itinerary including Asahiyama Zoo
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. For Asahiyama Zoo and beyond, use our Asahikawa day trip planning site to get the most from your Asahikawa vacation.

  • 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...  more

  • I've been now in May and January, and both the spring and winter here are absolutely gorgeous. The animals were much happier in the cold weather of January, so we were able to see them more active. The penguin march was incredibly cute! We ate lunch at the Garden Lion (?) Terrace restaurant, and it was reasonably priced and tasted good. Much cheaper than buying zoo food in the States. Definitely recommend a visit.
  • Nice and well maintained place for visitors to see how well the animals are taken care of by Japanese management. The only draw back is not too many shady areas and it is hot in sunny days. We love it. There is nothing else we can complain about this place.
