Ashahiyama Zoo in Asahikawa City may be the most famous zoo in Japan. The zoo places the accent on showing the natural behavior of the animals to the visitors.
Among the various types of exhibition, its penguins' parade is the most popular and
pretty exciting event in winter. The course of penguins pilgrimage is fixed in the zoo and the visitors have to wait for the penguins along the course.
Of course, the manner to see the penguins closely should be strict. But looking at the penguins going around the zoo in line and excellent manner may be the best code of conduct for the visitors including the kids who are struggling to control their desire to touch and hug the penguins. In the Antarctic area, the penguins of this kind called king penguin walk 100 km on the ice even in the harsh blizzard. do they like to walk a long distance? Its small
steps lead them to the pretty brood steadily. Shall we minimize the occasion to drive a car in the city?
