Rakugo in Dubai, United Arab Emirates

I've just returned from a wonderful trip to Dubai. It was lovely and warm and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. I had two Rakugo performances in English at the Kinokuniya Book Store in Dubai Mall, which is the biggest shopping mall in the world. The audiences were a blend of many different nationalities, all laughing together. This is something that I really love to see. I was thrilled at how well the Rakugo was received. Of course, some of the Japanese guests had seen Rakugo before but for many people it was their first time. I gave a little explanation before I began the story and we all had a great time. I finished each show with a Rakugo workshop and gave a few children the opportunity to try a little bit of Rakugo for themselves. I was happy to see that they were very enthusiastic and not shy about getting up on stage. It was a fun experience for all of us. I've come back to Japan with lots of wonderful memories and the desire to perform overseas again very soon.
