Long, long ago, the Emperor of China offered the Emperor of Japan a Giant Panda

You have been appointed to the delicate task of caring for this politically-important Panda and tending to the Emperor’s illustrious bamboo garden. You must cultivate plots of land using irrigation and intelligence so that bamboo, the only food that the Panda will eat, grows in abundance. But beware of the sacred animal’s uncontrollable appetite for crunchy young sprouts…

  • Colourful miniatures for the giant panda and the Emperor’s gardener suit the game’s light-spirited tone, and these figures will be critical to your designs to grow the most beautiful bamboo stands.
  • Takenoko includes more than four dozen plastic bamboo sections and twenty-eight beautifully illustrated garden plots, which combine to create a unique take on the art of gardening that is as aesthetically pleasing as it is fun.
