TAKE THE FIRST STEP
Many people study the performance of Rakugo in Japan with intentions other than being professional storytellers!
Businesspeople study for the presentation skills, universities have highly popular Rakugo clubs, actors study for skills related to their main craft, English learners study Rakugo in English as a challenging and fun way to improve and perform in their second language.
Some of these people go on to do professional apprenticeships to become Rakugo-ka themselves.
