※ Rakugo, a traditional one-person comic storytelling performance, is said to date back to the late 17 century and is still a very popular entertainment. Most stories are taken from ordinary people’s lives,mingling fun and sorrow.
On a zabuton cushion, a storyteller creates an imaginary drama with a creative way of speaking and a various use of facial expressions to portray all kinds of characters.
The only props used in Rakugo are a folding fan and a hand towel. They are used to represent many different objects such as chopsticks, pen, scissors, paper, wallet, and so on.
