  • 來到旭山動物園看到可愛的企鵝、北極熊、還有很多可愛的動物好滿足,可惜這一天突然間下起了小雨,但園區內提供了免費的雨傘、也發送簡便遮雨套給遊客使用,讓我們不用再花錢買雨具,真的很貼心,來到這一定要吃這裡賣的哈蜜瓜波羅麵包喔,好吃! 在戶外的餐桌吃東西,要小心一旁的烏鴉會偷偷靠近,趁你不注意,就把桌上的食物偷走喔。 
  • I went by bus from Asahikawa airport. Arrived at the main gate, baggage lockers, scoured the Park's main gate and climb is. Pretty Hill again fired up-was. Be posted at Munch time is different, so check the turn. And keeper talk food will do.

  • funny zoo. when i visited in summer, chimpanzees were kept in an air-conditioned environment, snow leopard was kept in the hot zone - small caged jungle. fascinating flamingos, giraffes, ostrich, peacock, and lots of birds and aquatic animals. good place for family trip especially kids. try the ice cream. has some kind of eatery inside, look for free parking just outside.
  • On late October, weather is rather cold and many animal gone hibernation or not showing (such as capypara) but it's ok for me. Give 4 stars for cute penguins, red panda, sea lions and polar bears
  • I love the interaction between human and animals. We can see the animal so closely. And they saw seemed happy unlike other zoos. Especially apes and its relatives. You are so humanlike. I noticed there are social behaviour. 大好き!
  • Stopped off here for a few hours as it is near the airport. I understand it's quite a famous zoo but it seemed fairly standard to me. Lots of sleeping animals that you can't quite get a good photo of through the bars. Chimpanzees were the best thing there as you sort if get to walk right up to where they are swinging in the trees vis a glass tunnel. They have attempted to do this with other animal enclosures, such as with the bubbles in the polar bears tank which you can crawl inti to take a look if you are small enough. However, I don't think it really worked as well as with the chimps.
  • There was too much hype all over place before we went there but this place is just okay. There weren't even many animals. I think the Ueno Zoo in Tokyo has more animals than Asahiyama Zoo.
