Three Chinese panda cubs born in Japan will head for their home in the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, Sichuan province, on June 5.

Liang Bang, whose mother came from the base, was born in 2000 at the Adventure World amusement park in Shirahama, Wakayama prefecture in Japan.

Liang Bang gave birth to twin babies Hai Bang and Yang Bang on Aug 11, 2010. Hai Bang is male and Yang Bang is female.

"In the same month two years later, Liang Bang gave birth to a female panda, You Bang," said base information officer Chen Cheng.

Back in 1994, with the approval of China's central government, her base started cooperating in scientific research into pandas and their breeding with the Adventure World amusement park.

Fifteen panda cubs have been born in the Adventure World amusement park; eight have previously been sent to the Chengdu base, Chen said.
