Welcome to the wonderful world of rakugo. A world of imagination.
This traditional Japanese art of comedy storytelling has been enchanting audiences for over 400 years.
The kimono-clad performer recounts a tale while kneeling on a cushion, using voice inflections, gestures and facial expressions
to portray all the characters and using only a fan & handkerchief as props to creatively represent a variety of objects.
The storyteller takes the listener on a magical journey, giving insights into Japanese customs, culture, and traditional lifestyles in a light-hearted, humorous way.
