The New York Rakugo Kai was established on May 7, 1994 as the New York Rakugo Aikou Kai, the only such club to be found outside Japan for the enjoyment of Rakugo, a form of comic storytelling with a history of over 300 years.

Good fortune enters through the door of laughter. Laughter is the foundation of good health. To know Rakugo is to know Japanese culture and to know Japanese culture is to take a step towards being an internationally minded person.

We especially hope that young people will hear this wonderful art form born in Japan, Rakugo.
