A quote

A pair of panda’s have arrived safely in Tokyo and are getting used to their new home after being loaned by China to Japan. Japanese officials say the pandas’ popularity will boost Tokyo’s economy and enhance the friendship between the two countries.

But they have to be patient as the pandas’ public debut is expected to be in late March following one-month in quarantine. Japanese officials hope the pandas can boost the local economy by 240 million US dollars or 10 percent a year.

Numbers visiting the zoo fell by about 500 thousand since Ling Ling died in 2008.
