Japan is a wonderland of unique, cultural quirks. Where else in the world could you find a train quite like the Asahiyama Zoo Train? The train transports passengers between Sapporo and Asahiyama Zoo and, after a short hiatus, it's chuffed back onto the tracks as of July 13th with some special new additions. The train is vibrantly emblazoned with animal murals coating the exterior, and the interiors include an abundance of oversized plush animal toys and the all-new “hug hug chairs” which make it look as though four-legged, furry friends are embracing you as you sit. The train’s motto is, “with many cute animals, a trip to the zoo will be much more fun”, and you’d be hard pressed to contest this. With colourful critters everywhere you look, passengers can’t help but catch jungle fever – the fun kind of course!
Once you're aboard, we're sure the only tricky decision left to make will be which seat to choo-choo-choose!
