Because it is cap-sized.

Japan has a long relationship with bamboo.
Bamboo appears in myths and legends as a metaphor for the strength of men.
It’s eaten in many dishes in Japanese cuisine - and, it was historically used to make tools for the home and in battle.
The opportunity to enjoy bamboo forests these days, has become rare making Arashiyama Sagano Bamboo Grove a unique opportunity for travelers.
Around the 8th century, Japanese aristocrats began vacationing in natural environments, with their belief that the natural environment was cleansing to the soul.
The bamboo grove, was a popular destination.
The stalks here, have attracted visitors from all over Japan since.
The dense forest covers about 16 square kilometers (3,950 acres), and the pathways stretch through about 300 meters (0.18 miles)
Tall fences along the pathway discourage visitors from entering but not all adhere to this.
The famous Arashiyama Bamboo Forest, also sometimes called the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, is located in northwestern Kyoto.
Near the base of the “Storm Mountains” the Bamboo Grove is a true sight to see, and one of the most famous forests in Japan.
Upon entering the forest, you’re surrounded by a sea of green bamboo stalks shifting in the breeze. The emerald light dapples the forest floor and infuses the area with a sense of magic and otherworldliness.
The Arashiyama Bamboo Forest is one of the most photographed sights in Japan.
Despite its long history, and possibly millions of visitors over the years, the Arashiyama Sagano Bamboo Forest survived from suffering damage from humans until recently.
In April 2018, reports of names and initials carved into the bamboo suddenly came out. Most of the names aren’t in Japanese, so many people believe that foreign tourists trying to commemorate their stay are the likely culprits. Doing so, however, damages the bamboo

Wow, I am old. I know 15 out 17. Those were the good old days. Cokes have never tasted the same. You could get them ice cold from the store and they tasted great in the southernly North Carolina heat. Air conditioning was rare back then. Picking up the phone to use it and the neighbor in the house next door saying “Excuse me, I am on the phone now” I know that there were less conveniences then but I take it back in a heartbeat! I would walked home from school come in the front door hollering Mother I am home.
Remember on Saturdays morning watching American Bandstand or Ed Sullivan watching these great artist. What was great about these singer you could understand the words in the songs. Remember Ed couldn’t show Elvis below the waist because his dancing was consider indecent then. I must not understand how to reply to comments. So you don’t reply to the individual and need to put them all together? Confused. Forgive me for doing it wrong this time.
