Rakugo in English with Shinoharu Tatekawa

Ever wanted to try and see some rakugo (traditional comedic storytelling), but scared your Japanese skills won't cut it? The Park Hyatt has got you covered with this one-off afternoon of rakugo in English, followed by a fancy dinner at Kozue, the Hyatt's upscale restaurant. The rakugo artist in question is Shinoharu Tatekawa, who was raised in the US and used to work for Mitsui before radically changing career paths after seeing a performance by rakugo legend Shinosuke Tatekawa. Unorthodox, yes. A recipe for a fun-filled afternoon? Absolutely.
