I Need Your Help! 英志からのお願い!


Hi everybody, hope you are doing well!!!

It’s been quite cold here in Auckland, but I am relieved that we are past the winter solstice… days are getting longer everyday!!!

As in the title, I need your help today.

Help that only takes a few minutes of your time (no money or effort involved!). Please read this till the end. Don’t go away quite yet!

It’s been almost 3 years since I started my English Rakugo journey in New Zealand, and now I have come up with a clear direction for the next few years.

Thanks to the funding from the Creative Communities Scheme and koha (donations) from generous donors, I have managed to produce my shows without taking financial risks.

Having said that, the general running costs of my rakugo project (website, transport, kimono, zabuton, etc.) have gone well above what I receive.

So… in order to make my project more self-sustainable, I have decided to run a Youtube channel to generate a little income so that I don’t have to go completely broke!

My friends and family, please follow my Youtube channel to help me out, the lone English Rakugo performer in the entire New Zealand.

Of course, a lot is lost when rakugo is filmed, so the way I make videos will be very different from the way I normally perform. I recommend you to watch it live!

I do not mind if you follow me and silence notifications, but it would be very, very helpful if you could follow my channel and even better invite your friends and family to follow it as well.

Thank you so much for all your help! Your help means a lot to me!
