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.

  • Xu Chuan Zoo star animal is goose walking, March is 11:00ㄧ field, Winter Park District opened only 10:00, Summer is 9:30 open, at Xu Chuan Jr Station Bus is 440 coins, along the way to the station can be on the car, the price of the park and the polar bear in the water to play buoy, he played very hi very cute! The park area is very large at least 3-4 hours after the end of a circle, the card has several languages, the solution is very interesting, even if the animal to life, its home is still a mark, remember the animal! It is worth mentioning that this is a humane animal park, monkeys have a game area, Okinawan, let the monkey climb the game, really happy! Other animal design spaces are also very large. The open cage are not closed, and the presentation is also very detailed!

  • I went to 3/6. It was a snow day. Coming from the East Gate entrance could go down the slope, so had "non-slip" wearing shoes. Especially for the elderly is a necessity. See the walking of the penguins from 2:30 PM, visited to ensure about 20 minutes ago.

  • It is a small room that focus on colder climate animals. The attraction is the daily penguin walk, please call to confirm because it can be cancelled due to weather conditions. Line up along the walk at least 15 minutes ahead for a good photo opportunity. Other exhibits are ok, and there are good food options within the zoo. The public bus leaves the zoo promptly after the walk so make sure you catch it. It is almost a 40 minutes ride to the nearest JR station.
  • Great zoo. Lots of snow still around when we went. The enclosures are great for the animals and they look well taken care of. The penguin and the seal areas are great with the underwater passages.
  • Although it's another zoo, this is a definite visit for all that comes to Asahikawa. The zoo is famous for its penguin march but there are also other winter animals that you don't want to miss. The most exciting is the polar bears whom loves the attention and constantly performs a walk when they seem a crowd. The cutest animal are the day sleeping owls and red pandas.
  • Undoubtedly the best zoo that we have ever visit. Allows close proximity interaction with the animals while maintaining high safety standard. The penguin march was a joy to watch and certainly a very good place to spend the day with family and friends Highly recommended!!!!
  • Penguin walk is really adorable during winter. It's an event not to miss. A pleasant place to visit for half a day. Pretty cold in winter.
