Have been to this place in 2010. This is the excellent place to visit if you like animals. They are kept by preparing their natural habitat ARTIFICIALLY. It's a very good experience to see the animals wandering freely. It has got a very spacious area. Souveniers are also very good.

If you haven't been to Antarctica for viewing penguins yet, do take your time to visit this zoo as there will be daily penguin parade shows for tourists. There are also other types of animals like polar bear and giraffe etc. and you can spend half a day inside the zoo. Transportation to the zoo is clear and simple and... More

Take a bus from the main train station that has its final destination as the zoo. This is not the biggest zoo that I have visited but certainly one that is well laid out given the space as well as good close up viewing of some of the animals. Take you time and wander around.

It is a small zoo but a charming one where you can get pretty close to the animals. But if you have been to the zoos in Singapore - Day Zoo, Night Safari & River Safari, you will be disappointed as it is no where near those world class zoos. Guess it is still good for kids below 6 who... More

Greetings from Geoffrey Goh. After driving for 180km from the North Fox Farm, we arrived at this famous zoo. In contrast to the foxes at the farm where thry can roam freely, the one fox in this zoo can only move in a 2m by 2m enclosure. This zoo has many unique openings for visitors to view the animals from... More

The layout of the Zoo covered 14hectares. Its a well planned venue with much consideration taken on the habitat and well-being of the animals and the comfort of visitors. Collection of animals consists of many varieties of endangered and vulnerable species such as the Bornean Orangutan and the Polar Bear. These are also the Stars of the zoo, where many... More

Very easy to walk-about and plenty of benches, slopes for the young and the elderly. Areas are not too far apart so there wasn't too much walking. Highly recommended for families.

Zoo is large, has many animals like other zoos. Their layout is different and it was a different experience to walk through the zoo. I had not visited a zoo from a long time and I m satisfied with Asahiyama zoo. It was summer holiday and it was not crowded and i am happy.
