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.
