Farewell to Aoteya Rakugo Club

With a very heavy heart, the Aoteya Rakugo Club has closed its doors due to the lack of interest and participation as of today.

Now that the Covid restrictions are gone, the members’ priorities and commitments have changed- some taking up new jobs and responsibilities, and others training for the national wall climbing championships!!!

I would like to thank the Auckland Council, Onehunga Community Centre, and all the staff who have helped us along the way. Without your supports, we would’ve never survived for the last 3 years. Thank you so very much!!!

I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank you, all the current and past members of the club, for the last 3 years. All the very best for your endeavours!!!

Meanwhile, this man can only think about rakugo that he will keep following his path- a boring man he is!

May our paths cross once again someday!

Best regards,

Kanariya Eishi

    I can’t say that I am not disappointed, but they say that when one door closes, another one opens. Here’s to the bright future of rakugo flourishing in NZ in other ways!

    1. Thank you for your kind comment, sista! I was super disappointed myself as I’d poured so much passion and effort into the club, but I also understand they have other passions, priorities, and responsibilities. Now I’m looking forward to seeing which new door opens up next! Exciting time!
