My name is Katsura Sunshine.
Please call me Sunshine!
I am a traditional Japanese “Rakugo” comic storyteller.
Rakugo is a 400-year-old tradition of storytelling.
There are over 700 professional storytellers in Japan today.
To become a professional storyteller, you have to do a strict apprenticeship that lasts for three to four years.
Your Master gives you your name, which consists in part of his name.
My Master is a very famous storyteller named Katsura Bunshi.
He has written over two-hundred stories himself.
I enjoy translating his stories into English and performing them both in Japan and abroad.
If you have any questions about Rakugo, please feel free to email me any time!
