Photo Journal: Cool sliding

Children and an adult slide down a "giant ice slide" at Abeno Q's Mall on Aug. 11, 2017, the first day of a three-day weekend, in Osaka's Abeno Ward. About 10 metric tons of ice was set aside to make the slide, which has two lanes set at a 25-degree incline, as part of the facility's "Abeno midsummer ice festival." The ice is prepared anew each day and the slide will be open until Aug. 13. It is targeted at children aged 12 and under, but parents can ride along with them. (Mainichi)
