Rakugo: From a Small Island Country to the World!

Rakugo is a treasure trove of laughter, tears, and terror best shared with the world.
Let's enjoy the world of English rakugo together!

Our association has two goals.

One is to hold English rakugo events and we would like to appeal the essence of rakugo to foreign people as a tool for introducing Japanese culture.

The other is to present English rakugo seminars and we would like you to utilize English rakugo in school education and in-house training.

We would be grateful if you could cooperate with us to promote these two goals.
