What type of bamboo for screening?

Hi, I have a shared fence that has plants all the way along which help give the garden privacy. However, there is one area at the bottom still open a bit (around six foot or so). I have decided to block it with some large bamboo plants, as this would fit in well with my japanese style garden.

I think two or three large plants (around 6 feet) will do it. The problem is the soil is very shallow down that part of the garden and I probably will need to plant them in large pots. It is quite shaded as well.

Does anyone recommend any varieties (I didn't realise there was so many!). Also, could you recommend a good bamboo stockist?

Thanks, Mark.
