Rakugo Returns to Deliver Laughter

Once again, we are pleased to announce that the Japan Onsen Caravan of Rakugo will be stopping with us here in Noboribetsu Onsen. Rakugo is a traditional form of Japanese storytelling where professional storytellers use only a fan and small cloth to tell comical or sentimental tales. Whether you are fluent in Japanese or not, the master storyteller will bring a smile to your face!

Rakugo comes to Dai-ichi Takimotokan twice a year and is a popular event that never fails to delight our guests.

The caravan has put together a compilation show called Iki-na Katsurogi Tei for the spring season.

Rakugoka (storytellers) visiting this time are Kakusho Shoufukutei from the West and from the East comes Yonefuku Katsura.

Takimotokan Main Building, 4th Floor, Room Ideyu
Saturday, May 18 20:30 – 21:30
Admission free for hotel guests
*Our taiko group, Hokkai Ideyu Daiko, will perform on Sunday, May 19 at 20:10 in the same room. Please enjoy their performance along with the rakugo!

(In case you cannot join us this time, please know that the rakugo caravan will visit again from September to November.)

Please come and enjoy their performances!
