Rakugo Info

Rakugo is a unique Japanese cultural form of traditional storytelling that dates from the Edō period. The girls in Joshiraku are rakugoka, and their lengthy names are traditional stage names, usually given by a master to his students. Traditionally, the apprentice adopts the surname used by their master, a convention also followed in kabuki and other traditional Japanese forms. Kōji Kumeta appears to be something of a fan of the genre, as the character of Jun Kūdo in Sayonara Zetsubō Sensei is sometimes depicted as a traditional rakugoka.
