Often featured in media, this popular zoo gets around 165 million visitors per year!
With many innovative ways to ensure that the zoo’s animals are able to live carefree in environments similar to those in nature, you can be sure to see the animals as they should be in the wild.

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.
