Returning home. Rakugo in Liverpool.

I was so happy to have a performance at a school in my hometown, Liverpool. It was great to have the opportunity to take back something that I've learnt in Japan and introduce it to schoolchildren in Liverpool. 
 They were wonderful and were very enthusiastic. I gave a little demonstration of what Rakugo is and threw in a bit of a quizz by speaking Japanese and asking them if they could guess what I was saying. They seemed to enjoy that. I then performed a Rakugo story and followed up with a Rakugo workshop. The children were great fun. I also showed them a short photo slideshow of my life in Japan. They were very responsive and were very interested in hearing about Japan. We finished off the show with some Laughter Yoga. The perfect way to end.
  After the show, the children asked lots of great questions about Rakugo and about Japan. They had obviously been paying attention and had a deep curiosity. I was thrilled to see that they were so interested. What a lovely day.
