Noboribetsu BearPark【Official site】

Brown bears are the largest species of animals in Hokkaido and were worshiped by Ainu, the native Hokkado people,as the God. There are approximately 2,000 brown bears in Hokkaido and the number is reported to be on the decline.
Noboribetsu Bear Park is located atop “Bear Mountain” that site in the deep forest of the Lake Kuttara area.
Farming, observing and studying of brown bears started in October 1958 and recorded a major success.
The numbers of bears are now over a seventy, from only eight at the beginning,and happily ever after is the way they live now.
