Performance of Japanese Rakugo

A Rakugo performance was held on October 16 in Smith Hall. This performance was held by the Departments of Japanese Language and Literature and Japanese Studies. Rakugo is one of the most popular traditional Japanese entertainments. It is a kind of comic genre in which an entertainer plays many roles while sitting on a cushion. Shofukutei Kinfei showed a Rakugo performance for two hours using Korean and Japanese to enhance students’ understanding of Japanese culture. Not only our university’s students but also other universities’ students attended this performance and showed a lot of interest.
