A tale of sunlight and shadows
The Japanese have a long history with bamboo in their folklore, metaphorically linking a mans' strength with this plant, Various festivals include the use of bamboo in various forms. We can see that from bamboo ice cream cups, buildings and fences. However it is not often we get the chance to see bamboo forests in their natural state that grow thick and line the path like they do here.

Chiba Zoological Park
Red pandas, giraffes and sloths
Chiba Zoological Park is comprised of five distinct zones that are well organized, large enough to recreate natural habitats, yet small enough to see everything on the same visit.
