Asahiyama Zoo

See all of the animals’ lively personas with the revolutionary behavioral exhibits!

Asahiyama Zoo rose to fame with its behavioral exhibits

The highlight of Asahiyama Zoo, the northernmost zoo in Japan, is its behavioral exhibits, which are specially designed to feature each animal’s distinct traits and abilities.
The zoo quickly became famous through this revolutionary type of exhibit.
The zoo also features many events including “Mogumogu Time”, (feeding time) where zookeepers feed the animals while explaining their traits and behaviors, and “Naruhodo Guide”, where the zoo staff share facts about the animals.
Be sure to check out the events to see a different side of the animals than normal!
