Everywhere I go in Sapporo I see KUMA KUMA KUMA!!!! It's printed on T-shirts, bags, posters, wristbands, hats, everything!!! Every time I see it I get a bit flustered.

I'm a bit taken aback by this since in Swahili... well... um... kuma is a dirty dirty way to talk about a woman's genitalia.

Here in Japan they love kuma (and by that i mean bears.)

When you return to Chi-town, we must go to the best burger bar in the city: Kuma's Corner. All their gourmet burgers are named after metal bands and it RAAAAWKS!!
