OKEICHAN is an English Rakugo performer. I started learning English Rakugo from Sayohime in 2009. Since then I have had many opportunities to perform English Rakugo. I hope a lot of people from other countries will enjoy Japanese laughing culture Rakugo.
What is Rakugo
Rakugo is a traditional perfoming art. It's a kind of one person funny storytelling. Themes are usually humorous incidents from daily life in the Edo period.(1600s~1800s)
What is English Rakugo
English Rakugo was established by Rakugo master Katsura Shijaku and an English conversation school owner Mr. Yamamoto about 30 years ago. My teacher Sayohime learned English Rakugo from Mr. Yamamoto.
