Asahiyama Zoo is one of Hokkaido’s leading tourist sites established in 1967. Despite the rising unpopularity of the zoos with the emergence of other attractions such as theme parks, the Asahiyama Zoo has managed to regain its admiration.
The zoo is known for carrying out interactive activities between animals and its visitors as well as showcasing animals to reveal their captivating natural behavior. The feeding time is known as Mogu Mogu (chomp) Time, where animals are fed at various timings so that the visitors can enjoy the moment. Orangutans swing above the visitors in the summer and penguins walk in line during winter. The Zoo welcomes you to come at anytime of the year!
