    to PM 02:00

We are going to invite a volunteer performer and enjoy "RAKUGO" in English.

-What is "RAKUGO"?
It is a Japanese verbal entertainment.
The lone performer sits on stage and tells a long and complicated comical story,
not using any tools except a paper fan and a small cloth.

He is going to do one comical story (about 15 minutes) and another funny story for encore.
In total it would be about 30 minutes to 1 hour.

For non-Japanese, this is a rather rare occasion to experience rakugo;
usually it is played only in Japanese. 
Please feel free to invite as many friends as you would like! Admission is FREE.

*Only Sakura House/ Hotel guests can apply for this event. 
**No problem with bringing friends as long as they understand English!

Day 1: 25th JULY (Fri.) 18:00 p.m.

Day 2: 26th JULY (Sat.) 14:00 p.m.

Location: Sakura Hotel Hatagaya


*The same stories will be performed on both dates.
**We will be accepting sign-ups until the last minute.
