Asahiyama Zoo, Asahikawa, Japan 2020

Asahiyama Zoo is located just outside of central Asahikawa. It is a 40 minute bus ride from Asahikawa Station. Every winter, one of the most anticipated activities at the zoo, is the Penguin Walk. We braved the -20C weather to witness this.

Overall, the zoo is very well kept. The animal’s cages are quite spacious and the animals are far from any misbehaving tourists. The animals had ample space and looked quite comfortable in their cages.

I would rate the visit to this zoo a 7/10. Go for the penguin walk but I don’t rate animals in captivity highly. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice place and very informative (especially if you would like to see animals who thrive in snow/winter) but it’s just not my thing.

To keep it short and simple: I'm thirty years old. Still plenty young, but not as young as I used to be.
