KANARIYA EIRAKU, from Tokyo, Japan performs Rakugo in English for International Organizations, at foreign embassies and educational institutions, from elementary schools to colleges.

Rakugo is a 400 year old tradition of comic storytelling in Japan. A minimalistic performance, Rakugo features a lone storyteller dressed in a kinomo, kneeling on a zabution (cushion), while using only a fan and a hand towel for props.  They entertain the audience with a comical monologue followed by a traditional story.

Eiraku believes Rakugo is beneficial in life and English Rakugo will help people acquire English language skills, develop a sense of humor and improve their presentation skills.
