Rakugo: Traditional Storytelling and Traditional Geisha Dances

Take a step back into old Japan with some geisha dances and rakugo, the traditional form of comic storytelling that flourished among Edo's merchant classes. Pieces like the Edo-era vaudeville 'Momokawa', performed by Shozo Hayashiya, and the 'Hitori Sakamori', performed by Gontaro Yanagiya, should be particular highlights. The second part consists of dances by geisha from the six geisha quarters of Tokyo, and joint musical performances by geisha from the three areas of Shinbashi, Akasaka and Asakusa.
