Visiting Asahiyama Zoo, The Best Zoo in Japan


Some of you might put Disney Sea or Universal Studio Japan in your family holiday itinerary to Japan as "must visit" places. For our family, we avoid going to themeparks. Instead, museums, aquariums and zoo are always on the top of our must visit places list.

By far, our favorite city with best museums and aquarium is Sydney. How about zoo? I must say that the Asahiyama Zoo which is located in Asahikawa, Hokkaido (2 hours train ride from Sapporo), had stollen our heart. 

Known as the best zoo in Japan, Asahiyama Zoo is very famous with its penguin parade during winter. But how fun it was to visit this zoo during summer? It was a blast! We love the penguin museum, the open outdoor, the view to the city and everything!

Mr.husband had taken load of pictures that it was so hard for me to pick for this post! And this was my fave picture of Asahiyama Zoo, yup the penguin!

Hi there gorgeous!

Things To See & Do Around Biei JR Station - Hokkaido


I have never heard about Biei before, a small city which is 2,5 hours away by train from the largest city in Hokkaido, Sapporo. As we were planning our Hokkaido trip, mr.husband request to do his cycling in Biei. 

After a further searching on the internet, I found out that Biei, which is known as a hilly town  is very beautiful. I also found a flower field called Shikisai no Oka. I will write a full review of Shikisai no Oka in a separate post later on, but let me share with you things you can do around the city of Biei, to be precise: around Biei JR Station.

We took train from Asahikawa to Biei JR Station about 40 minutes, and we got out in a small station of Biei. I will share with you things you can enjoy around Biei JR Station, to plan your visit to Biei.

Finding Halal Ramen in Sapporo: Ramen Horyu


One of our bucketlist in Sapporo is to try the famous Horyu Ramen, as it's one of the option to find halal food in Sapporo. Horyu (or sometimes written as "Houryu") was established in 1957, and categorized as a Muslim friendly restaurant. Meaning they separate the cooking/dining utensils for Muslim guests, and also they serve food with no pork or alcohol.

Sapporo is famous for its ramen, so a visit to Horyu Ramen was a must for us. We went there on our first night in Sapporo, it's located in a walking distance from our hostel in Susukino area: The Grids Hotel+Hostel.

Bear in mind that the place of Horyu Ramen is small and always crowded. We had to wait outside on a bench just in front of the shop until our turn has come.
