So the positives are that this is cheap, it's moderately sized, and you can get a pretty close view of some pretty cool animals. The negatives... Some of the enclosures feel like they're straight out of the 1980's. The monkeys especially looked kind of sickly...More

Animals are well looked after, big and nice place filled with snow during the December period. The Zoo is well maintained and clean.

A very inexpensive zoo, with a large variety of animals. Zoo is well-maintained, animals are well-fed, and the toilets are clean. However, the indoor enclosures are a little too small, resulting in some of the animals pacing about repeatedly and looking frustrated. I suppose it’s...More

What an experience, walking through a glass tunnel and seeing two polar bears and a number of seals swimming over you (they are separated in to different pools so don't worry about seals becoming a meal for the bears). And this is only one of...More

Asahikawa Zoo is small but it is famous for action exhibition. Maruyama zoo is much larger. There are many kinds of animals and many events are held. It is also nice to go by subway from the center of Sapporo.
