As the northernmost animal kingdom in Japan and the largest polar zoo in Japan, Asahi Zoo is famous for its unique venue design and close contact with animals. Through the unique design of the exhibition hall, from different perspectives 360 degrees without dead angle, we can get a glimpse of the living habits and behavior of animals under the relative natural ecological environment and feeding conditions. Brilliant polar bears, selling you their favorite designs in the Mengmeng Polar Bear Pavilion through glass, can drill under a semi-circular glass cover and try to experience how seals feel when they are preyed by polar bears. In a cylindrical glass tube, the seemingly swollen seal has a fascinating swimming posture. Of course, as the top brand of Xushan Zoo, the penguin's outdoor snowfield walk must not be missed. The red-marked walkway in front of the venue is lined with people looking forward to half an hour in advance. When it's cold, looking at those germs walking on Starlight Avenue in swallow tails, they are like stars, twisting, swaying and walking slowly. The limping pace is probably the most unusual one in nature. People holding cameras and mobile phones on both sides of the aisle kept taking pictures. Most of them hoped that they could send a representative to greet us at close range. The little man who fell down almost sprouted an unwanted exclamation in his ear from time to time "Kawayi" "Lovely Lovely!" and the look of innocence just burst out. For a moment, he forgot the cold waiting in the snow and was full of healing. In addition to the three treasures of Xushan Zoo - "penguins, seals, polar bears, there are many other budding animals. The little panda who jumps up and jumps down is the girl's favorite. Neighbors on both sides seem to have been used to it. The raccoon nests in a group of sleepy, the snow fox gazes at the four sides cleverly and lovely. It's a pity that I can't go to see the red-crowned crane on this trip. It's a pity that I can watch the red-crowned crane from a short distance here. Unfortunately, I've worn my lips and turned around several times. These two red-crowned cranes are stingy. Dance in perfect posture. The cold wolves howled from time to time, but they could not disturb the leisurely herds of shrimps and deer. Closing one's eyes on the branches, sleepy owls and eagles overlooking the upper pole form a sharp contrast. Hokkaido's local "residents" stay in their respective "nests". In the year of monkeys, monkey hills are busy. I don't know whether they are not afraid of the cold or know how to warm up. Some of them snuggle together, some of you jump up and down, and occasionally show their red buttocks, which makes people feel very funny. Tired and cold, you can also go to the central dining hall of the zoo on the side of the seal hall and order a seaweed slice with the face of the sprouting seal. The elastic and delicious Xushan soy sauce noodles made from Xuchuan's special wheat can be as long as 680 yen, accompanied by a 380 yen salt fried chicken nugget in the pill-taking pavilion. After the big fast summer, you may as well go to Zoo Shop, the central snack store of the zoo park nearby. Inside, the shelves are all original products of Xushan Zoo, the yellow label is exclusive out of print, find some lovely gadgets, the best budding companion oh.
There is a bus to the zoo at the gate of JR Xuchuan Station. It runs half an hour and boards on platform 6. There are signs on the ground. When boarding, it takes a small ticket. When getting off, it puts the ticket and money into the money box beside the driver. Xushan Zoo is not very big, we slowly stroll and eat, more than two hours to end, but the design of the venue is humanistic, so that visitors can watch animals from close quarters. Animals are very clean and have a very good mental outlook. Only when I saw the notice posted on the window of the leopard door did I know that the animals had fallen down, and a lion was not in good health today. The environment of the zoo is very good. Some leaves are red this season. The combination of red, yellow and green is really beautiful.
JR arrived at Xuchuan Station at 10:30 a.m. on the same day, and hurried out to check in the luggage and took the 10:40 Zoo Bus. There was a platform just outside the gate. The queue was long, but it felt like there were many buses, not just on the timetable. A car was full of passengers. As soon as it left, another empty car came. It takes about 40 minutes to get to Xushan Zoo. The Penguin cruise takes place at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. The Tour took a long time, so when we entered the park at 11:30, the staff near the Penguin Pavilion signaled us to go to see the penguin tour. It was a surprise that we could see it again in the morning. It's true that the penguins in Xushan Zoo have sprouted. There are more penguins in Xushan Zoo than in other places, and the tour time is longer. After half an hour's full view, I went to the Penguin Pavilion. The zoo saw seals, polar bears, wolves, deer, snakes, raccoons, chimpanzees and so on, but no tigers and lions. The restaurant in the garden has all kinds of food. Pay for it on the vending machine first, then give the waiter the ticket and find a seat. The noodles are delicious. The Penguin Parade goes on at 2 p.m. It feels like the whole journey is one hour long. It's so loved to follow the photograph all the way. It's almost 3 o'clock when it's over. Go to the gate and wait for the bus. Similarly, there are many flights, and it feels like seeing more tourists, we will arrange more cars to evacuate passengers as soon as possible. Chao Meng's little penguin has seen two cruises. It's worth it!
There is a direct bus at Xuchuan Station, which runs every 10 minutes. It's very convenient. It's 9:25, 10:00 and 9:30. It's meaningful to go too early. In fact, what I admire most is the idea of zoo managers to show the natural form of animals to visitors. So we can see that there are many wooden poles crossing vertically and horizontally in the monkey house, with hanging ropes and nets. The monkeys are swinging in and out, their agile hands and naughty gestures make the visitors clap their hands and admire them, sometimes they can't help being handsome. A one-meter-diameter cylindrical glass viewing window was designed and constructed in the Seal Museum, where curious seals shuttle up and down and play around. Through this window, visitors can observe seals 360 degrees freely, and can also watch the funny performance of seals patting their bellies to feed exhibitors. Because of refraction, the seals are bigger than they actually are, so that visitors can observe the seals'posture more clearly. The large glass windows of the Polar Bear Pavilion provide a close view of the giant polar bear's flexible posture of jumping into the water to catch fish. The feeding show which is staged at a fixed time every day is the most distinctive one. Tigers, lions, cheetahs and other forest kings are walking around in front of you, as if you could reach the tail of the gift bag with your hand. The orangutan Pavilion is more exaggerated. There are two large shelves on each side. Seeing a little baby climbing to the middle of the shelf without knowing how deep it is, he is afraid to go up or down. He calls for his mother there. So the mother of the orangutan goes to rescue.... When the little baby was embraced in his arms, the following visitors applauded together unexpectedly. Of course, it is dangerous to look at chimpanzees under the shelf, because chimpanzees like to poop in the air. When they are happy, they hear the screams of girls there, not to mention that they are completing the natural metabolism. Haha's concept of action display breaks the dull static state of animals hiding in the corner of the cage in zoos. The new dynamic beauty displayed by animals really becomes the highlight. The zoo also uses carefully designed hand-painted instructional Kanban boards to introduce small animal files and life habits to tourists in the form of words and cartoons, giving full play to the function of teaching and enjoying.
In the past, when it comes to Japan's most famous zoo, people naturally refer to Tokyo's Ueno Metropolitan Zoo. Nowadays, when it comes to popularity, it belongs to the Asahi Zoo, the northernmost zoo in Japan, located on the outskirts of Hikawa, Hokkaido. Xushan Zoo, in addition to a variety of common animals, there are seals, polar bears and other northern cold areas of life, but the really impressive way they show animals. It advocates presenting the original life of animals so that everyone can see the happy and energetic appearance of animals. Zoos use the "action display" method, that is, almost every animal's Museum area is designed into a full-scale display space, from underground, water, ground to air, almost from every angle to observe the life habits of animals. Traffic - "From Xuchuan Station, take Xuchuan Electric Rail Bus, 40 minutes to Xushan Zoo, ticket 440 yen. The station is just beside Xuchuan Station. We bought a set ticket (including two entertainment items) for the Zoo + Snow Village in advance. It also included a lunch (ramen or fixed food), 1800 yen, free for children. The zoo is open at 10:30, counting the time on the road, we went to the station at more than 9 o'clock. There are many people in the line. The 20-minute train on the internet, in fact, is not full, and then it opened immediately. The efficiency is very high. The zoo said that it opened at 10:30. In fact, it opened around 10:15. It is estimated that there are too many people waiting for it, so it is ahead of time. The main part of Xushan Zoo is the penguins'walk. There are two times, 11:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. We just caught up with the 11:00 p.m. scene. Early in the morning, we took a place in the sun to wait for the penguins to walk. People are fighting for this group of penguins. When the time comes, under the leadership of the breeder, they sway, swallow slowly out, look around and feel like animals, and they are watching us, haha.
If you do your homework well in advance, JR can change to the bus directly after coming down, and then catch up with the first penguin show. After all, this is the most attractive project of the zoo, and it looks really wonderful. After watching the performance, you can go to the zoo first, and then go to eat, so that you can avoid not only the peak meal, but also the bus and JR peak.
The Asahi Mountain Zoo is the northernmost zoo in Japan, located in the city of Asahikawa, Hokkaido. The ticket is 820 yen. The vending machine in the park is very special. The zoo has many very humane facilities for viewing animals. It is very convenient for visitors to watch and observe animals at close distance, in a real and all-round way, and their behavior is near at hand.
I bought the annual card of the zoo, which is suitable for me in Hokkaido 3-4 times a year. The second time I came to Xushan Zoo, I would like to supplement the free transportation. Xushan Zoo Strategy: 1. JR Sapporo - Xuchuan 1.5 hrs. 2. Queuing for trains at the departure terminal. 3. Confirm the departure time (2 shifts per hour, starting at 7:15 and ending at 14:10). 4. Get ready for 440 yuan and drop in coins at the front door of the station. 5. The travel time was 0.5 hrs. It's really interesting to take the children to see the penguins for a walk in the future.
It's said that it's a famous zoo. It's not hot. It's the first time to bring your baby here to see penguins, polar bears and bears swimming in the water. Unlike the animals in the Shanghai Zoo, they are lazy, full of vitality and interact with tourists. There aren't many pavilions in the queue. They are all on the go. Children are happy. Ticket 820 is really inexpensive.
In December, the Xuchuan Zoo went from Sapporo to the entrance of the zoo by the zoo number transfer train and then by bus. The bus route is to get tickets and put coins in the queue before getting off, so we must prepare the change zoo for half a day to go, taste the zoo noodles and watch the snowscape warm.
