Let's talk about traditional Japanese culture.

Dialogue

David: What do you think of the rickshaw, Hannah?

Hannah: This is fantastic! Is it part of traditional Japanese culture?

David: Yes! A long time ago, rickshaws were a popular way to get around. They were like taxis. Now, rickshaws are mostly used for tourism. Some drivers can speak several languages.

Hannah: That's awesome! I can imagine Japanese people using these a hundred years ago.

David: And it's perfect for our day out. But I forgot, what are we going to watch?

Hannah: Rakugo. It's a kind of traditional Japanese performance. A person sits alone on stage and tells a story to the audience.

David: Uh-huh.

The stories are usually funny, and sometimes dramatic. The performer plays all the characters on their own.

David: Wow! They do the whole performance alone?

Hannah: That's right! And they only have a folding fan and piece of cloth to help tell the story.

David: That sounds incredible! I can't wait!
