We will invite you to the English Rakugo performance on Oct 21, Saturday. Lets’ enjoy the Japanese traditional entertainment in English language. Have fun!
RAKUGO is a traditional Japanese verbal and comical entertainment. Each story is performed by a storyteller (Rakugo artist, RAKUGOKA) who will play two or more different characters in the story only by slightly changing the pitch of voice and action.
