Katsura Sunshine's Rakugo

JAFAX is proud to bring Katsura Sunshine to Grand Rapids for the first time!

In 2008, he became the 15th apprentice to the great Rakugo Master Katsura Bunshi VI, from whom he received the name Katsura Sunshine.

Sunshine was the first ever Western Rakugo-ka in the Kamigata tradition (Osaka / Kyoto) and only the second in Japanese history, after his predecessor Kairakute Burakku a hundred years before.
