Born in Gojo City, Nara Prefecture After graduating from the Faculty of Law at Kansai University May 2002: Apprenticed to Jakusaburo Katsura
While I value classic Rakugo, I am not bound by the concept of where to perform.
I place importance on performing in various situations with inspirations. Cafes, Bars, Clothing stores, Gardens, Campgrounds, etc.
In the summer of 2022, Opened "Jakuta Kathura administrative scrivener's office"
When I have time I like to
in the midst of nature and try to prepare my mind and body
I also enjoy talking with people who happen to be next to me.
It's all about "Good Timing." I wish you the best of luck...
