EDO CULTURE RAKUGO NIGHT

A SETSUBUN RAKUGO DINNER SHOW

STARRING KOKONTEI BUNGIKU

Oni was soto, fuku wa uchi – demons out, good luck in – is the Setsubun mantra, so come and throw a few Setsubun beans at the FCCJ on Monday February 3rd, when up and coming rakugo star Kokontei Bungiku will perform two classic rakugo routines at a special dinner performance.

Rakugo, Japan's kneel-down comic story telling, which blossomed in the Edo period, uses word-play, timing and body language to entertain and amuse. Kokotei Bungiku is a master of the art.

A graduate of prestigious Gakushuin University, he served his apprenticeship with the renowned rakugoka, Kokontei Engiku. In 2009 he was recognized by NHK by the award of the broadcaster's New Entertainer Grand Prize, the time the national network has honored him. Bungiku will perform in Japanese after a dinner featuring traditional Edo soba as well as more cosmopolitan dishes.

Part sponsors of the evening are the  Kato Kichibei Shoten sake brewery, which are providing generous supplies of their best brews for unlimited enjoyment including prize-winning 'Born', served in first-class on some of Japan Airlines transpacific flights.

Phone (03)3211-3161 or reserve online.
