In part two of our Shinjuku feature, we dive into Japanese culture and traditional arts as we sit down and interview Mr. Hikoichi, a special guest and performer of Japanese traditional art of comedy Rakugo. Rakugo is an old art or storytelling which gained much popularity in the Edo period and is still performed to this day. Throughout the interview, Mr.Hikoichi gives us insight to what Rakugo is and lets us in on the artists’ techniques and even performs some for us. Rakugo can be viewed in Yose, performance halls, in a number of locations across Tokyo. In this episode, we introduce a particularly historic Yose in Shinjuku which Mr.Hikoichi describes from the performers perspective. Please take a moment to write us a review if you enjoy this podcast.
