“a world of new excitement awaits”
The Asahiyama Zoo (旭山動物園 Asahiyama dōbutsuen?) is a municipal zoo opened in July 1967 in Asahikawa, Hokkaidō, Japan, and is the northernmost zoo in the country. In August 2004, over 320,000 people visited the zoo, the second highest number of visitors among all the zoos in Japan. Located in Higashi Asahikawa, on the outskirts of Asahikawa, the Asahiyama Zoo is accredited by the Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums (JAZA).
Worth a visit when you're in Hokkaido. They have shows/talks, question and answer portion but its all in Japanese. But just walk around you will still see and learn a lot.
