Hikohachi Rakugo Festival 2014

The annual Hikohachi Matsuri, Rakugo festival, was held at Ikutama Shrine on September 6th & 7th. I had a show in Iwate,Tohoku on the 6th (Saturday) but I was able to take part on the Sunday. As usual, I helped with the tea ceremony - serving the special sweets and matcha (green tea). It's set up in a peaceful part of the shrine grounds, surrounded by trees and is always a popular spot for people to sit and have a little rest. The weather was beautiful and I was able to catch up with lots of friends in the Rakugo world. There is always a fantastic turnout of Rakugo fans. a great festival.
