Hokkaido: Asahiyama Zoo in summer

Many cute animals for you to make friends up close

Asahiyama Zoo is an interesting place to visit near Asahikawa. It is a place you can go spend an entire day without getting bored. It's more popular in winter as there is a special penguin parade show. However, in summer, this place is not any less fun to visit. Aside from the many animals (both local Hokkaido species and animals from around the world), the key highlight of this place is the many interesting and up close ways you can interact with the animals that are unlike any other zoos.

He reminds me of a naughty character in Happy Feet, but I can't recall the name.
