Over 200 species of Japanese and foreign rare bamboo grow in Funaoka Bamboo Grove Park in Yazu-cho, Yazu-gun, Tottori Prefecture. It is one of the few full-scale bamboo gardens in the country. Surrounded with fresh scent and energy that is emitted from bamboo trees and soft green light seen through bamboo leaves, visitors can fully enjoy “bamboo bathing.”
Other than bamboo trees, the park has plenty of high spots including white, pink, mauve and cardinal red flowers of moss phloxes that cover the ground in spring and beautiful azalea flowers in early summer. Landscape that changes from season to season provides visitors with relaxation and refreshment. Evan families with children can spend enjoyable time because barbeque facilities, bungalows and camping site are arranged in the 7 ha. park ground.
