Asahikawa January 05, 2008_-7

(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.[1] Located in Higashi Asahikawa, in the outskirts of Asahikawa City, the Asahiyama Zoo is the northernmost zoo in the country.
