A Panda's Rep

There is a grassy space next to the Toppan office in Edogawabashi that seems to double as a playing area for the neighborhood kids. This area is demarcated by some of the least cuddliest animals you will ever see in a space ostensibly for kids:

The panda in particular was apparently voted "the scariest-looking panda in Japan". (Source: unreliable, as my dad claims to have seen this on TV.) But I can attest to the unnerving expression on the panda's face.

But if we're casting votes, I nominate the panda in Toyama Park (between Waseda and Takatanobaba). That is one shifty-looking creature.
