  • 從旭川車站到這裡要坐40-30分鐘的接駁公車,有點距離,但是這裡有很多可愛值得看的動物,建議來的時候帶點飯團或便當,餓的時候可以先吃一下。冬天來這裡很冷,約零下15度,要做好保暖 
  • Went to this zoo during the winter period and the view was amazing. There were sufficient exhibits to see although about 50% of them were "closed" (animals did not come out) due to the winter period. ...  more »
  • Wonderful hospitality description Board staff hand-made and each animal exhibits and waiting staff, will guide you. Enjoy Penguin walk. I felt more of Southeast Asia including Chinese rather than Japanese people.

  • 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.
