Rakugo, the Traditional Story-telling and the Traditional Dance
by Geisha - Ozashiki Entertainment –Finished.

- Fascinating Ozashiki - fun to listen to, beautiful to look at, singing together doubles the pleasure

The program combines Rakugo, the Japanese traditional comic story-telling with beautiful traditional dances performed by Geishas from three bustling entertainment districts of Tokyo, Shimbashi, Akasaka and Asakusa. Rakugo will be presented by three renowned story-tellers, Shunputei Ichinosuke, Hayashiya Shozo and Ryutei Ichiba. Ichiba, a superb singer, will also show his skills by singing with the Geisha Shamisen players. At the end of the program, the audience will have a chance to sing a typical parlor recreation song together with the performers after being given a short lesson by Hayashiya Shozo. Get a taste for the fun traditional parlor recreation from the Edo era! In the grand finale, the audience can join the stage with all the Geisha dancers and the Rakugo masters.
