A pre event that is held customarily at every pre-performance event. One of our most popular events where the Goddess of Victory smiles even on small children. Both boys and girls got fired up in this game.
Again this time we started with a story without pictures. Even so, with his smooth and simple way of talking the children were able to focus on the Rakugo. Children must love farting sounds a lot. They thought it was so funny.
If we look at Master Shoraku Hayashiya’s experience and actual skills, we can see that he’s a top class paper cutting performer in Japan. Even the paper horse that was cut on request looked so lively and powerful that it seemed as though a Sengoku commander could jump right on it.
Lastly, we had a ghost story which gave the feeling of the late summer season. The fright in the air increased as the lighting and sound effects set the mood. Although in the end it turned out to be a funny Rakugo story after all. Some things that were difficult to imagine were made clear with pictures, such as the water well and the old mansion.
