Ice-bomb Japanese style...Or the Knut - Japan Connection...

When it is hot in Japan, it can happen that ice-bombs make their way to the polar bears there too...On that specific day by end of July Yukio and Reiko at Tokyo's Ueno Zoo got that special treat. Note, no meat!And it was a gift....
..."A gift from the producer of the new film on German polar bear Knut"...
Packed with fruits and vegetables....Male polar bear Yukio adopted a practical approach to the task - he lifted up the ice block close to his face and took a mouthful...With temperatures reaching over 30 degrees Celsius by midday, the edibles also provided much-needed sustenance against the summer heat.

His female counterpart, Reiko, was less hands on. She stooped her head instead and took a bite. After she had successfully accessed the fruit and vegetables, she cooled off from the summer heat by diving into the water....

Hello Reiko and Yukio!

It's nice to meet you.

I know Tokyo it's where Captain Seki-San comes from, it is on the island of Honshu.

I want to say 'Kon nitiwa" to you and "sayonara".

The Japanese word for polar bear is'Hokkyoku Guma" or ' Shiro kuma'.
Which one do you like better?
