Maruyama Zoo Sapporo.

円山動物園 (札幌) Maruyama Zoo (Sapporo).

The greatest engaging point of Maruyama Zoo is to enjoy the “Good relationship with Animals”. Here are many chances for you to encounter energizing time with animals. For example, in the “Kid’s Zoo”, you can try to feed a squirrel, monkies, touching guinea pigs, rabbits or other little alluring ones. In “Kangaroo house” you can feel the “body contact” with wallabies or kangaroos. In front of the outdoor stage, you can meet the traditional art of manipulating birds of prey, (Takasho) falconer by yourself.

Other than the animals, the zoo offers you entertainment facilities too. “Perception Rest House” was built just beside “Monkey Mountain” with a decent perspective of monkeys acting vivacious, energetically in front of you. On the first floor, there are a few zones, for example, “PictureBooks-booth” and “Climbers’Wall”. You can also relax  on hammock serenely. On the second floor, there is a lounge for the visitors to take a rest and eat something.
