Convention city that’s also home to Japan’s finest zoo

Asahikawa is surrounded by nature, lying close to the magnificent Daisetsu mountain range. It is near to many renowned landscapes, such as Biei, Furano and Daisetsuzan, Japan's largest National Park. A fine excursion is to Asahiyama Zoo, Japan’s most popular zoo thanks to its policy of housing animals in their natural environments. The city is famous for its fresh seafood, taken from three seas, the Sea of Okhotsk, Sea of Japan and the Pacific, as well as for Asahikawa ramen noodles.
