Friendship zoo in Sapporo city. There is no other zoo where you can contact animals so far in Hokkaido, such as lion feeding and breakfast with giraffe! Besides touching penguins, seals, and alpacas, in addition to being in the park, there are numerous owls now popular in the "Dangerous Forest" which is said to be the most dangerous place in the world, besides lots, such as lizards, piranha and crocodiles, You can enjoy it. Besides touching animals, North Safari Sapporo has a lot of experience menus. In the summer you can enjoy amphibious cars and DTV shredder experience, winter in snowmobiles and banana boats. Please get the subway and bus from Sapporo station. We look forward!

It's a zoo, but not ordinary zoo. Every animal is very close to you. You can touch and pet most of animals. Also you can even feed bears and lions. You can also enjoy unusual food such as alligator burger, kangaroo burger.

I would give this a rating of 0 or -1 if I could. I recommend that you do not visit this "zoo", it is more of a private animal collection where the animals are treated as pets more than wild animals. Most animals are displayed...More
