A giant panda cub made her full debut at Japan's oldest zoo in Tokyo on Tuesday, greeted by lucky visitors who obtained tickets in a competitive lottery.
Ticket holders waited in the cold for over an hour before the zoo opened for the 9:45 a.m. exhibition of Xiang Xiang, the first panda born to a resident mother at the zoo to be publicly exhibited in nearly 30 years.
OSAKA--The Kuroshio limited express offers more than just the bear necessities of a rail ride--the train connecting Kyoto, Osaka and southern Wakayama Prefecture is undergoing a panda-themed makeover.
The panda-faced express train started service on Aug. 5. JR West enlisted the Adventure World zoo in Shirahama, Wakayama Prefecture, whose main attraction is the giant panda, to help with the revamp.
