Rakugo

Rakugo is a form of Japanese verbal entertainment.
A storyteller sits on stage called Kouza wearing kimono.
Using a fan, teacup and a small cloth as props, and without standing up from the sitting position, the rakugo artist plays a long and complicated comical story.
The story always involves the dialogue of two or more persons; the difference between the characters is made a distinction by only through change in pitch, tone, and a slight turn of his head.

By the spread of TV, rakugo was not temporarily popular, but also has regained popularity.
Laughing is essential on mental health.
The TV program "Shouten" that storytellers show us the verbal talent is the long-running show program, which continued 50 years.

Shinjuku Suehirotei is one of a few theatres in Tokyo to watch rakugo (comic storytelling).
