  • Enjoy Japanese Sit-down Comedy in English with RAKUGO this October 7!
  • Time to laugh out loud again with Rakugo!

    Organized by All Nippon Airways (ANA) and in cooperation with The Japan Foundation, Manila (JFM) and Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO),we bring back Rakugo in English, a Japanese Sit-down Comedy with special Japanese guest artists to enthrall Philippine audiences on October 7, 2017, Saturday, 3:00 pm at Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati City.

    Rakugo is a Japanese comic storytelling art that has been used as entertainment for over 400 years and is still widely popular today,staged at “yose”, which are specialized theatres for Rakugo. The artist speaks to the imagination, and single-handedly creates the hilarious side of tradition of Japan.

    Enjoy Rakugo with Kaishi Katsura, the world’s top performer of English Rakugo and former Japan cultural envoy, along with Asakichi Katsura and Fukuryu Katsura. Meanwhile, as a colorful counterpoint to all-talk comedy, Kouki Houraiya will amaze audiences with daikagura traditional clowning, a vintage street art with elements of acrobatics, juggling, magic, dance, and comedy.
