Do you know "Rakugo"? It's a traditional Japanese entertainment of comical storytelling that covers everything from people, customs, food to unique sceneries. On "RAKUGO NIPPON!", we follow the travels of Rakugo performers in Japan, and discover how their encounters with the local charm and people inspire original English Rakugo performances. This episode will follow Rakugo Performer Shinoharu Tatekawa to Kamakura where splendors such as the Hydrangeas Temple, seafood and mountain vegetables and traditional craft of "Kamakura-bori" await him. Just what kind of Rakugo will this journey usher?
