Mr. Bamboo is a well known maker of bamboo ware across Nippon who lives in Kusa Village with his adopted granddaughter Kaguya and previously with his now deceased wife. Mr. Bamboo will only use bamboo from Sasa Sanctuary and was worried he would have no ware to sell at the Kamiki Festival when the sanctuary was closed due to the kidnapping of Jamba’s daughter. Once the sanctuary reopened he assisted Amaterasu in reviving the dried spring.
His adopted granddaughter Kaguya was found nearly dead amongst the bamboo of Sasa Sanctuary inside a metallic bamboo stalk (rocket). When Kaguya grew older she felt drawn to Sasa Sanctuary where she unearthed the metallic bamboo stalk (rocket) below the crest of the Moon Tribe that was etched into the ground. Mr. Bamboo admitted that he knew it was hidden there and pleaded for Kaguya to stay. Kaguya explains that she needs to find what it is that draws her to the moon and departs leaving Mr. Bamboo in tears.
