English Rakugo in Kyoto:
The public sits on cushions called zabuton.
It was of course forbidden to take photos during the show. However, at some point a lady from the US was invited on the stage to practise rakugo by imitating the performer.
Then, it was even my turn. It was an interesting experience. There were foreigners from various countries in the audience.
Thank you for that surprise, Masako-san and Keiko-san! Later on, we noticed the performer in a restaurant nearby.
