Asahikawa's Asahiyama Zoo has become the city's most popular tourist attraction in recent years, replacing Asahikawa ramen (hot noodle soup) for that particular title. With a ridiculously low entry fee and plenty to see, it's really a great day out...
Winter Tours from Asahikawa
There are a number of winter tour options from Asahikawa, catering for almost any interest or budget.
Skiers and snowboarders looking for that little bit extra will seriously want to get a backcountry guide to take them to the deepest and most secluded powder stashes for a full day of deep powder action.
For those looking for a little less vertical, dog sledding offers plenty of speed and excitement in a gorgeous forest setting. Inexpensive and fun, it's one of those rare experiences you'll never forget.
There's also plenty available around town and a private taxi tour is by far the best way to see a great deal in a short period of time. The tour company offers many courses, vehicle choices, and durations, making it simple to budget for time and cost.
For something distinctly unique, though out of town, how about a cruise on an ice breaker through the north-coast drift ice?. A comfortable bus tour takes you to the port cities of Abashiri or Monbetsu where you will board an ice breaking ship and head out into the heart of the drift ice. Truly spectacular.
