With feedings known as “Munchy Time,” seals swimming around in a cylindrical aquarium, breathtaking polar bears, and more, there’s so much to see!
After the snow piles up every year, the penguins are taken for an adorable stroll. This is always met with many cheers from the audience! As there are day-trip bus tours from Sapporo available, we recommend that visitors with busy schedules take advantage of tours.
