Asahiyama Zoo
In the past, when talking about Japan's most famous zoo, people will naturally mention the Ueno Zoo in Tokyo. Today, when it comes to the most popular, it is the Asahi Zoo located on the outskirts of Asahikawa City, Hokkaido, Japan. The Penguin in Asahiyama Park and the penguin walk twice a day are my biggest expectations for the city of Asahikawa. Many years ago, there was a Japanese TV drama, which was an interesting story that appeared in the Asahiyama Zoo. At that time, I was full of illusions about Daoyang Xushan, which I still dont understand. Asahikawa Zoo is not big, and the Penguin Pavilion is definitely a highlight. Located in the center of the park, it is divided into indoor and outdoor parts. The indoor part can see different kinds of penguins through the glass, and there are detailed speeches to introduce the appearance and living habits of different varieties. The outdoor part is the area where the penguins are ventilated. The penguin walk twice a day is also the starting point and the end point. It is said that there is also a zoo in Noboribetsu in Hokkaido. There are penguins walking in the winter, but there is no Asahikawa in the snow, so the penguins walk on the outdoor pavilions instead of in the snow. The penguin's ankle is very soft. If the snowfall in Asahikawa is not big enough, in order to prevent the penguin from hurting his feet because of walking on the stone, the zoo will cancel the penguin walk on the day.
