Rakugo is the centuries-old Japanese storytelling genre based on comical monologues.

Rakugo master, Someta Hayashiya will be traveling from Osaka, Japan,

Rakugo will be performed in English.

AJC では、日本から人気上方落語家の林家染太師匠をお招きし、新春落語会を開催します。

本公演は、英語での上演ですが、簡単なボキャブラリーを賢く楽しく駆使してのお話なので、英語が苦 手でもノープロブレム!

What is RAKUGO?

Rakugo is traditional Japanese art of comedic storytelling. It dates back to the Edo Period (1603~1868) and remain popular today. It is kind of like a sitcom with one person playing all the parts. It is verbal art and a humorous entertainment at the same time. It’s not just a series of jokes, in discrete segments; it’s a continuous story. Rakugo is all about masterful storytelling with tons of humor!
