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.

I am a restless soul that likes to globe trot in hope of expanding my self growth in every possible directions. I like exploring new places or exploring new angles of familiar places. There is always something fresh to see, which will rejuvenate your soul. Japan is one of the unique places with such rich culture, natural beauty, and advanced modernity. You feel peaceful, but at the same time, excited by the surrounding in Japan. I want to encourage everyone to travel with not just wide open eyes, but also, wide open mind. There's no better place to start than Japan. Pack your bags and explore, don't just hit the tourist spots but find some time to go out of the beaten path. You may get lost a little, but you will definitely gain valuable experiences that is worth it in the end ; )
