    Tokyo Chiyoda-ku Kandasudachou 1-17 Kato Building 2F
    A rakugo (traditional comedic storytelling) theater located just a two-minute walk from Awajicho Station’s A3 Exit. The theater only hosts rakugo story tellers of the futatsume, or second highest, rank. Seating 35, visitors can enjoy rakugo up close and personal. Different programs are shown at different times and all are very reasonably priced—the “one coin” program around noon is just 500 yen; while the “daily special” and “caterpillar” programs are 1,000 yen. No matter your age, it’s easy to enjoy rakugo at the Kanda Renjakutei.

    神田須田町の路地裏にあって少し分りずらい場所です。三遊亭●●、柳家●●、桂●●、立川●●などの若手さんの高座がリーズナブリなお値段で楽しめます。昼のワンコインは11時から3名の噺家さんで何と500円。昼席は13時からで1,000円、夜席は19時からで出演者により1,000円-2,000円と幅があるようですが、気楽に行けます。座席数は38席とコンパクトで立ち見は出来ません。高座と客席が近いので迫力あ...

    Tokyo Shinjuku-ku Shinjuku 3-20-8 WaMall Tops House 4F
    A theater belonging to the Shochikugeino entertainment company located in Shinjuku City, Tokyo which opened its doors in 2011 and which inherits its name from the Dotonbori Kadoza performing arts hall which operated in Osaka from the Edo period. The hall is primarily used for performances by entertainers affiliated with Shochikugeino, plays, traditional rakugo storytelling, and events. Seating is stepped to provide greater visibility. The theater also has a shop which sells T-shirts, towels, and performer merchandise. Check the official website for information on performances and performers scheduled to appear.

    全然気取ってないし、全力でみんなを楽しませてくれてる空気感。芸のレベルの高さ、そして有名な方たちを近くで観れる贅沢感…文句なしに普通にすっごく楽しい時間が過ごせました。機会があったらまた行きたいです❤️

    Tokyo Tachikawashi Akebonochou 1-36-1
    This is a dedicated theater for Taishu Engeki where theatrical companies tour around Japan performing historical plays, buyo (Japanese dance), and kayo (Japanese ballads), and the facility is located about six minutes on foot from JR Tachikawa Station. There are three types of seats available: gallery seating, tamari seating (the first two rows closest to the stage) and chair seating. The distance between the seats and the stage is close enough to clearly make out the expressions on the actors’ faces, allowing guests to enjoy plays that are full of presence. Part of the appeal to this theater is that visitors can enjoy various programs that change each month since it invites popular theatrical troupes from all over Japan to hold performances.

    昭和記念公園から徒歩でファーレ立川アート見物向かう途中で偶然「けやき座」の前を通りました。 JR立川駅から徒歩10分も離れ、商店街でも、飲み屋街でも、繁華街でもない、何でも無い場所に大衆演芸場があることに驚きました。

  • Nezu / Ikenohata Shinobu-tei
    Leisure / Hobbies
    Tokyo Taitou-ku Ikenohata 2-5-47
    This is a yose (a storyteller's house) located in the Ikenohata district of Tokyo's Taito City. It opened for business in 2013 using the first floor of the home that rakugo storyteller Koraku Sanyutei had constructed. Although it is a small-scale yose accommodating 40 to 50 people with zabuton (flat floor cushions) on wood floors, this is also the greatest benefit in that guests can sits close to the presenter and enjoy the live sounds of rakugo without necessitating the use of a microphone. The closest station is Nezu Station.

Tokyo Areas

The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It’s hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world’s tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you’re in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
