Japan - Hokkaido : Asahiyama Zoo

Sapporo - Feb 2016


The most popular animal in Asahiyama Zoo is the penguins.They even hold two fashion walk at 11am and 2.30pm.  

We set off very early that day to catch the JR Limited Express to Asahikawa station and another bus from the station to the zoo in order to catch the 11am penguin walk. We reached the entrance of the zoo at around 10.50am so we quickly bought the tickets but we couldnt run fast due to the slippery icy route. Luckily the zookeepers led the way and the show did not start on time (hmm.. so unlike their culture). We were very surprised to see so many people already crowded along the path.





The most right was the most hairy one hahahaha








After the penguin walk, we continued to explore the zoo. The zoo was actually not as big as I expected and was covered by snow so it seemed a little empty.
