Bamboo Mat Show
The English Rakugo Association has several masters of the bamboo mat presentation called Tamasudare, which adds a pleasant and glamorous flavor to the rakugo show.
Shirato Master Instructor (Shihan)
Bamboo Mat Show called Tamasudare begins with the words "Look, look, look, look, look...". Although I had been interested in it for a long time, I could not take the first step, but through English rakugo, I began to attend Tamadare classes of the Shirato school, and a year later I was given a license of natori (master). Since then, I have had the opportunity to perform Tamasudare both in Japanese and English.
Unlike Kabuki and the tea ceremony, this traditional performing art is not well known to foreigners, but it makes me really happy when I am given favorable feedback from foreign audiences. In December 2020, I was certified as shihan (instructor), so I would like to spread this classical performing art to the world along with English rakugo.
