Asahiyama Zoo is located in Asahikawa, Hokkaido. It is particularly known for having a variety of animals which live in cold temperatures and behave as they do in the wild. Watch polar bears dive gracefully into the water, penguins swim as if they're flying or when they happily trot on the snow. Witnessing the animals's feeding time is also particularly recommended.
