(Just to clarify, it does have a head but is hiding it, nothing was done to the photo)
I went to Asahikawa to see the Penguin march. It is an event run during the winter by the zoo, where the penguins take a little walk around the zoo and you can get a more up close with them.
The Asahiyama Zoo (旭山動物園, Asahiyama dōbutsuen) is a municipal zoo in Asahikawa, Hokkaidō, Japan. In August 2004, over 320,000 people visited the zoo, the most visitors among all the zoos in Japan. Located in Higashi Asahikawa, in the outskirts of Asahikawa City, the Asahiyama Zoo is the northernmost zoo in the country.
