Asakusa Engei Hall


in Asakusa & Sumida River

Asakusa was once full of theatres like this one, where traditional rakugo (comedic monologues) and other forms of comedy are performed. There are also jugglers, magicians and the like. It’s all in Japanese, but the linguistic confusion is mitigated by lively facial expressions and props, which help translate comic takes on universal human experiences.
