Special Cultural Event

English Rakugo from Japan

Kanariya Eiraku, from Tokyo, Japan, performs Rakugo in English for International Organizations, at foreign embassies and educational institutions, from elementary schools to colleges.

Rakugo is a 400 year old tradition of comic storytelling in Japan. A minimalistic performance, Rakugo features a lone storyteller dressed in a kimono, kneeling on a zabuton (cushion), while using only a fan and a hand towel for props. They entertain the audience with a comical monologue followed by a traditional story.

Eiraku believe Rakugo is beneficial in life and English Rakugo will help people acquire English language skills, develop a sense of humor and improve their presentation skills.
