With a convenient pick-up in central Sapporo, this comfortable bus tour will bring you the newly-designed Asahiyama Zoo. The areas were built from the animals' perspective in order to encourage an active lifestyle. Penguins shuffle along through the snow, seals swim through tunnels of glass, red pandas clamber across bridges and polar bears dive into the water after their prey.

A great all-day adventure, this is a perfect excursion for Hokkaido visitors of all ages to check out the zoo residents both underwater and high up in the treetops.
Tour duration: 9 hours 50 minutes
