Obihiro Zoo (Obihiro Doubutsu-en)
Polar bears are very popular animals in the zoo! The zoo is a healing theme park that both adults and children can enjoy.
Obihiro Zoo was opened in 1963 as the second zoo in Hokkaido. The zoo now houses 73 kinds of animals and the total number of animals is 400. The zoo offers some events, including an open night in summer, the opportunity to experience taking care of the animals throughout the day and learning about taking care of animals, and a lesson on animal life throughout the year, in which both children and adults can participate. Through these experiences participators can feel close to animals.*Admission fee: adults ¥420, over 65 ¥210, high school students ¥210, children free
