The feeling of lonely struggle could not be forbidden, and it was thought that Harudanji's death gave the title to Manzai.

I made a contract.With this tideThe first Morino FukuroThey raised their name and brought benefits to the upper storytelling world.

1957In (32), the 3rd generation Somemaru became the first chairmanKamigata Rakugo AssociationIs formed[16]..Under the chairman, the 2nd generation Mitsuzuru, the 3rd generation U.S.A., the 2nd generation Katsura Fukudanji (named by Katsura Koharu in 1950), and the 3rd generation Katsura Kofumie (named by Katsura Ayame in 1952) became the secretary, and Somemaru. And the four secretaries together, "Upward Rakugo Five MenWas called[17].

From the 40s to the end of the Showa period

In the 40's of the Showa era, the disciples that Matsuzuru, U.S.A., Harudanji, and Beichou Katsura, the third generation, had been actively taking, emerged against the backdrop of the television era and the late-night broadcasting boom.Kachou,Shofutei Nizuru, Katsura Bunshi (current6th generation Katsura Fumie),Shoufutei Tsurumitsu,2rd Katsura spring butterfly,Shofuitei, Katsura Asamaru (current2nd generation Katsura Zakoba) Etc. get attention.In particular, Nitsuru gained popularity for his laughter rakugo, which was conscious of the first Katsura Harudanji.1972In (47), he was sought after by regular TV and radio programs, and suddenly became a stardom.Matsuzuru et al.'S Masters have accepted the advancement of young people into the media as the best way to get widespread recognition of Kamigata Rakugo, and as a result, the number of beginners has increased, and in that sense, Nitsuru's achievements are great.

It was around this time that the radio-based vaudeville broadcast became more centered on upper rakugo than traditional comic storytelling and Tokyo rakugo.1971(Showa 46) In October, Asahi Broadcasting Corporation commemorated the 10th anniversary of the opening of the station.1080 minutes RakugoIs held.A total of 7 seats from 1 am to 56 pm (Talk(Including one seat) was broadcast live.OtherRadio Osaka"XNUMX selections of onward rakugo",FM Osaka"Upper FM Yose" etc. cultivated many fans, mainly young people.

-In the direction1966Starting with the "US-North Korea Spot Show" (Showa 41), solo performances have been held in the large hall, and in particular, the US-North Korea has been holding solo performances and Ichimonkai with the follow-up of its popularity as a broadcasting talent. ..Fumie also held a solo performance in Tosaka with the fans who gathered at "Kinshi Katsura no Kai".At that time, the number of fans of Kamigata Rakugo was increasing in Tokyo, mainly university students, and eventually this movement spread nationwide.From around this time, the evaluation of Matsuzuru, U.S.A., Harudanji, and Fumie increased, and eventually they said, "The Four Tennos of Kamigata RakugoWill be called.

Along with the popularity of rakugo, before the war, amateur rakugo circles called "Tenguren" were born one after another, but the "Rakugo Study Group" consisting of university students was the most active.From here, many talented people pass through the professional gates and support the current Kamigatara storytelling world.

1986(61), the 6th generation Matsuzuru, who has been the driving force behind the postwar upward storytelling, passes away.Before and after2nd generation Katsura EsakuHas emerged, so-called "Manzai boomDespite being in the midst of "Laughter King", it became so popular that it was later called "Laughter King".At this point, Kamigata Rakugo has finished its reconstruction period and is heading for the next era.

Heisei period

Even in the Heisei era, public interest in so-called "comedy (art)" such as rakugo and comics did not decline, but after the "MANZAI boom", the main stage of comedy shifted from vaudeville to the broadcasting media.On the other hand, the number of entertainment programs has decreased, and leading rakugoka have been appointed to variety shows one after another.As a result, the rakugoka said,ComedianUnder the abstract name, it became borderless at the audience / viewer level with comic storytellers, comic storytellers, and comedians, and the opportunity to show the uniqueness of rakugo narrowed.Although there are many people who want comedians as broadcast talents (actually comics, comics, and tales, but they rarely have the opportunity to show off their original arts in the broadcast media), those who specifically enter the world of rakugo. Is less than in the 40s.

This is the same phenomenon in both east and west, but in the case of Kamigata Rakugo, the influence of the early death of the second generation Shijaku Katsura in 1999 (Heisei 11) is also significant.The charismatic and popular Shijaku Katsura hole was not easily filled.Also, Shofu-tei Matsuba (posthumous recognition)7th generation Shofutei Matsutsuru),2nd generation Katsura Utanosuke,Kimaru Katsura,4rd generation Hayashiya Somegoro,Yoshinori KatsuraThe world of rakugoka born after the war, who had been longing for the future, was also hurt.Under such circumstances, "Shofukutei Tsurubin et al.Six people meetingActivities and4rd generation Katsura BungaClassic excavation work by3rd generation Katsura Koharu Keiji,Kakusho TsuruhaThere are also new movements such as overseas performances (puppet rakugo).

In addition, there is an example in which an entertainer who was originally active on television as a comedian or comedian starts a new rakugo story in an attempt to develop his own new art in the saturated state of the entertainer.Most of them just like rakugo as one of the arts, but Kunimasa Yamazaki (Tsukitei Hosho), Those who join the association and start rakugo in earnest, go one step further, Seihei Goto (Tsukitei Taiyu) And Watanabe bell (Katsura Sando), Some people are starting to abandon their traditional careers and choose the path of rakugoka.

Since 2004, exchanges with Tokyo have become closer. As of 2008, the number of Kamigata Rakugoka who participated in the "Daiginza Rakugoka Festival" sponsored by the "Rokujin no Kai" reached 114, and while the friendship between East and West Rakugoka deepened.Fukagawa Edo Museum,Oedo Nihobashi-tei,National Engei Hall,Yoshimoto Asakusa KazukiRakugo enthusiasts in Tokyo are also accepting Rakugo, as the number of Rakugo performers appearing in major theaters such as[19]. further,Shoufutei TsurumitsulikeRakugo Art AssociationThere are also those who join the group and take disciples in Tokyo to popularize Kamigata Rakugo.

On September 2006, 9, the Kami-Rakugo Association announced the first post-war special seat for Kami-Rakugo.Tenman Tenjin Shichotei(See below) was opened, and as it was introduced nationwide as one of the tourist attractions in Osaka, the number of visitors has continued to exceed the initial expectations.In addition, it depicts the half-life of an upper female rakugoka, which was broadcast from October 2007 to March of the following year.NHKContinuous tv novel"Dust and dust"Has gained enthusiastic popularity mainly in the Kansai region, and some generations have become interested in rakugo by watching the drama.Appeared as a brother of the main character in the dramaKatsura YoshiyaRakugo has always been a big hit since its broadcast.

Difference from Edo Rakugo


mainlyKamigata dialectTo useKinki areaIt is also a point that foreigners have a hard time getting the idea.Depending on the characters in the storytellerKyoto language,Osaka dialectEtc. are used properly.In recent years, dialects derived from one's hometown (Wakayama dialectThere are also rakugoka who play in).

In Edo RakugoAboveThere are many people who speak these words (eg, "Mikami Sake Tokuri", "Kinmeitake", "Sanjuseki", "Gion Matsuri"), but in Kamigata RakugoEdo languageDoes not appear much. "" And "Edo rough goodsIt is about.Before the war, due to differences in language and art style, Kamigata Rakugo was not accepted by the Tokyo audience, but after the war.MediaWith the development of Osaka, the language of Osaka permeated Tokyo, and with the efforts of the second generation Katsura Kobunji, the second generation Sanyutei Hyakusho, and other upper storytellers in Tokyo, and the activities of the aforementioned "Kamigata Rakugo no Shitenno", it can be heard actively in Tokyo. It became like.


For classic rakugo,3th generation Yanagiya KoMany byAboveThe storyteller was transplanted to Tokyo, and on the contrary, some storytellers were transplanted upward from Tokyo.Therefore, even if the content is the same, the titles of Kamigata Rakugo and Edo (Tokyo) Rakugo are different.Scary bunThere are also stories with different contents, such as ".However, this is not the case for the storytellers that have only one side, after the Pacific War, when East-West exchanges have progressed.

Travel material

"Travel story", which is the center of Kamigata Rakugo, is divided into four parts: "East trip", "West trip", "South trip", and "North trip".Rakugoka who are new to the story are taught "the beginning" as a familiarity depending on the family, but there are also stories that require considerable skill, such as "XNUMX stones" in "East Journey".

For other travel stories, "Travel in the dark"Eight scenes of hell, "" ("Ryugukai Ryu no Miyako") for a trip on the seabed, "" for a trip to the sky, and "" ("Flatulence of an adult on an island tour") for a trip to a foreign country. You can see a flashy production using a flatulence.

love story

Along with Rakugo (Rakugo in a narrow sense), it forms the axis of Edo Rakugo.love story(Humanity in a narrow sense.TalkClose toSageThere is no. "Peony lantern","Sentence","Shinkei Kasanegafuchi”, Etc.) can be said to not exist in Kamigata Rakugo."It is said to be included in humanity in a broad sense.Standing incense, "Zakohachi", "Daimaruya uproar"Etc. is a rakugo storyteller.However, there are exceptions such as "Oni Azami" that do not have sage (BailPorted from, etc.).Regarding this difference, "Joruri had established a solid position in the upper part, so it was less necessary for Rakugo to take charge of humanity," said Katsura U.S.A.

In the present age when East-West exchanges are advancing, there are rakugo storytellers who dictate human emotions with an upward wind, so the principle that "there is no human emotions above (less)" is breaking down, but overall, the upper performances are dropped. Is the center.

Play story

For Kabuki-themed rakugo

1. How to perform Kabuki plays as they are: "Kagamiyama", "Honnoji", "Jiraiya", "Tsunachi"

Sage: When ordinary sage is used, and after the curtain is over, "Hey, it's the best in Japan. It's the best in Japan." "No. I'm a Japanese drugstore in Nihonbashi XNUMX-chome, I thought I'd advertise the store here. Hey, the best in Japan!" Then the young man in the hut came and said, "This is the best in Japan." There is a pattern of screaming, "I'm sorry at the drugstore," "Hey," "Hey, here," "What's wrong with you!"

2. How to change from ordinary rakugo to a play: "Konbu Maki play", "Tako play", "Kuracho-juku", "Pawn shop play", "Foot-up", "Seventh stage" Most of them are

Sage: Here it is a normal sage.

It is divided into two types.

The production of the play story in Edo changes from the middle of the humanity story, and the costume is pulled out and a writing split is provided in the background, but such a production is not used in the upper part.He was good at the first Katsura Bunga in the Meiji era, the first Koharudanji Katsura in the Showa era, and Kobunji Katsura who moved to Tokyo. In particular, method 1) is extinct.However, after the first Keiji Koharu turned into a dancer as Hanayagi Rokudai, NHK recorded some stories as images to hand down the arts, and now Katsura Beichou and others are based on it, such as "Honnoji". We are trying to revive "Sotten Play".

New Rakugo

Some in the Showa eraNew RakugoWas made in the rakugo world of east and westSubstitute(Also known as "Amanuensis"), Beichou Katsura, 3rd generation "", 3rd generationHayashiya SomegoroWork "",Junichi MitaWork "Mameda", Etc. are in the category of classics, and some of the performances are also performed in Tokyo.Currently,Mitsue Katsura (currently, 6th generation Fumie)("Wife's trip", "Sea bream", "Golf before dawn”, Etc.)Creative RakugoIt is made actively under the name of. Sadao OsadaIt is also characteristic that there are full-time rakugo writers like Ichimon.2nd generation Shofukutei MatsunosukeIs "Koji Akashi", 4th generationKatsura BunkoWas working on a new work under the name of "Aoi Rodtake".


The characters in the story are Kiroku, Seihachi, Osaki, Genbei, the landlord, a doctor (often named "Akakabe Shuan"), and the old man in Uemachi.

Kiroku (both Kii-san and Kii-san) plays the role of "stupid", which is equivalent to "Yotarou" in Edo. Is often used), which is different from "Yotarou".As for his personality, Yotaro is often set as a natural idiot, but somehow he is awakened. (→ ""Kiroku and SeihachiSee also)

Kumagoro and Hachigoro, who often appear in Edo Rakugo, play the roles of Kiroku and Seihachi in the upper part.The names of Kumagoro and Hachigoro appear above "Camel"Heavenly ghost", "Brain heavenly bear Goro" (also known as "Yataketa's bear Goro" in "Camel"), "Hachigoro shavedThere is even "Hachigoro" in.In addition, the carpenter's builder, who appears in the Edo Rakugo "Sanken Nagaya", appears above as a helper (Tettai) Matabei.

In productions placed after the Meiji era, when the time setting is not specified or the common people are allowed to give their surnames, a general surname may appear after the real name of the rakugoka who is related to the performer (for example). "Takeuchi-san" for the 6th generation Matsuzuru Ichimon, "Ohashi-san" and "Okamoto-san" for the Hayashiya Ichimon).


Generally in rakugoFan,Hand towelIs used as a prop, but there are the following props that are used only in upper rakugo.

A small desk placed in front of the performer.Think of it as a writing desk, bathtub, futon, or floor.However, there are some rakugoka who do not use it depending on the story they perform, and some rakugoka who rarely use it (such as the 3rd generation Katsura Harudanji, the 2nd generation Katsura Shijaku, and Katsura Saegusa).
Small time signature
smallBeat tree..It is usually placed on the lectern, and when it rings, it has a small time signature with the left hand and hits the lectern.It is used as a rakugo storyteller, or to change the atmosphere.It is also used to signal behind the scenes that make sound effects such as the sound of musical accompaniment and bells on the sleeves of the stage.In a strange placeCreative RakugoOn a computermouseExample of using it as if it wereKatsura Bunchin· "Heart love cyber").
Knee hiding
A small tsuitate that hides the performer's knees.

Normally, the above three points are used as a set, and when carrying them in and out of the stage, put a knee cover on the lectern.

I wrote the name of the performer, which is commonly used todayFamous villaAnd the table on which it is heldMekuri TheMeijiUntil the timesDashiWas used only in the upper yose until the early Showa period.


It is also different from Edo Rakugo in that it includes a musical accompaniment as a production during the oral performance.This musical accompanimentFittingsCall.

For example, when the performer says, "I'm coming to Shinmachi. That cheerful thing" ("Three pieces of contract"), a musical accompaniment in the dressing room plays the shamisen and sings a song to express a gorgeous Yukaku.On the other hand, when the characters walk on a lonely night road in "Futanari" or "Bancho Sarayashi", the shamisen is played quietly to express a lonely scene.

As mentioned above, it is often used to describe the scene, but in "Nozaki pilgrimage" etc., it is used for onomatopoeia such as the movement of a boat. In "Rakugo" such as "Paper scrap shop" and "Tsuji Zou Chaya", it becomes a type of interaction with the performer. In plays such as "Tako Shibai," "Pawn Shop," and "Honnoji," KabukiUnderground musicBecomes

Bunchin Katsura sometimes uses the mechanical sound of a computer, which is also a variation of the fitting.

The musical accompaniment player is also called "Shimoza" or "Hetari", and is composed of a shamisen player and a drum player and a flute player.The shamisen player is a full-time player, but the music player is often a young rakugoka.Shamisen players faced difficulties in succession after the war,Intangible cultural property for which measures such as record making should be takenHe was the holder of "Kamigata Rakugo Shimoza Music"Hayashiya TomiAfter the death of (the wife of the second generation Hayashiya Somemaru), he was in danger of surviving, but the third generation Katsura Beichou featured it in his program "Asahi Family Warotei" (Asahi Television Broadcasting).4th Hayashiya SenmaruThe number has gradually increased due to the activities of younger generations, and as of December 2006, the number of members of the Kamigatara Rakugo Association alone is 12.As a typical modern shamisen playerEika Utsumi,Shiyo Katsura(Wife of the second generation Shijaku), Kazume Hayashiya (5th Hayashiya KozomeWife of,3rd generation Katsura AyameSister) and others.


True hit system TheTaishoOnce abolished in the times, after the warKamigata Rakugo AssociationWas revived as a secret internal rule, but it became famous and innocent due to the upward rakugo boom in the 40s.

With the opening of Temma Tenjin Hanjotei, Saegusa Katsura (currently Katsura Bunshi 6th), the chairman of the Kamigatara Rakugo Association, proposed a plan to revive the true hitting system, but many dissented opinions abandoned it.

Currently, the incense board (internal rules of the Kamigata Rakugo Association) exists as an alternative to the true hit system, with Nakaza (corresponding to the second Edo Rakugo) for more than 5 years of art history and the same rank as true hit for more than 15 years.

Fixed seat


From the Meiji era to the early Showa era

Osaka city from the Meiji era to the early Showa period, especially MinamiHozenji TempleIn the surrounding area, on the north side, it was a symbol of the Sanyu faction.Koumeitei(Formerly known as "Imaka's seat" and "Izumikuma's seat". Later acquired by Yoshimoto Kogyo and "Nishi Kagetsutei"), "Nanchi" was a symbol of the Katsura school on the south side.Kanazawa-tei"(Similarly after the acquisition of Yoshimoto," Nanchi Kazuki ") existed and competed.

OtherKitaKitashinchi"Eirakukan" (also "Kitashinchi Kagetsu Club" after the acquisition of Yoshimoto), etc.Uehonmachi,Horie,Matsuya Town,(I.e.,Matsushima,Osaka Tenmangu ShrineThere were more than a dozen rakugo-specialized fixed seats in the neighborhood, but as Yoshimoto gradually acquired them, starting with Tenmangu's "Second Bungeikan" (also "" after the acquisition of Yoshimoto), it gradually became a manzai center. It shifted to the contents of the box office.

During the Pacific War, vaudeville performances were only held for about four hours a day due to the consolation to the battlefield and the aging of rakugoka.Missing entertainers from Tokyo YoshimotoYanagiya Kingoro,Yanagiya MikimatsuEtc. were called in and the box office was not held.However, due to the intensification of the war, some were closed and the remaining vaudeville seatsOsaka air raidReturned to ashes.

After the Pacific War

The Kamigatara Rakugo Association, which was concerned that the absence of a fixed seat specializing in rakugo would lead to the destruction of Kamigatara, was led by the chairman, Shokakutei Matsuzuru.South wardMillennium TownShimanouchi Church of the Japanese Christian ChurchBorrow1972(47)2From the 5th of the month "Shimanouchi vaudevilleIs held.It was positioned as a fixed seat beyond the boundaries of entertainment agencies and broadcasting stations (at that time, some well-known rakugoka had an exclusive contract with the broadcasting station), but due to the circumstances of the venue, it collapsed in just two years. It ends up.

After that, "Shimanouchi Yosei" changed venues.1974(49) Brother sewing machine building (Shinsaibashi) in April, bowling alley in the basement of Senba Center Building in December of the same year,1975(Showa 50) In MarchDaiei Kyobashi storeIt was shortened to the box office on the 3rd of the month.This "Shimanouchi Kyobashi Daiei-tei" has been around for about 9 years.1984(59) Moved to the restaurant "Temporary" in Tataya-cho, Minami-ku in April and returned to "Shimanouchi", but three years later, "Temporary" was closed due to building renovation.1987In (62), he moved to CB College in Shinsaibashi, and finally became a box office on the 1st of the month.1993(5)Tennoji OfIsshinji TheaterAfter moving to1996(8)Wach upperMoved to the lesson room with the opening.2005The venue was moved to Wach Hall in (17).With the closing of Wach Hall2011(23)Sennichimae OfTORII HALLIt moved to, and it is still going on on the 1st of the month.See belowKobe Shinkaichi / KirakukanUntil the opening of the museum, the Kamigata Rakugo Kyokai positioned Shimanouchi Yose as the two wheels of the association-sponsored Yose along with Tenman Tenjin Shigesho-tei.

1999From (11)2000Until (12), the Kamigatara Rakugo Association, along with the Nankyoku Best Friends Association, worked with the Agency for Cultural Affairs to seek the establishment of a national theater in Osaka similar to Tokyo.As a result, nowNational Bunraku TheaterIt bears fruit as an "upper performance special event" held in odd-numbered months in a small hall, but it is only held six times a year, and it is far from being called a fixed seat.

After that, the concept of specialized fixed seats emerged and disappeared, but when the Kamigatara Rakugo Association entered the Katsura Saegusa system, it became concrete.2006(18)May 9"Tenman Tenjin ShichoteiOpened on the north side of the precincts of Osaka Temmangu. Thirty-two years after "Shimanouchi Yose" left Shimanouchi Church, and 32 years after the bombing of Osaka, the rakugo-specialized seats were revived in both name and reality.Furthermore, on July 61, 2018, as a fixed seat next to Temma Tenjin Hanjotei,Kobe CityToKobe Shinkaichi / KirakukanOpened.

After that, with the success of Temma Tenjin Hanjotei, the entertainment side became more motivated to review rakugo, and in 2008, only rakugo artists began to perform regularly at Namba Grand Kagetsu.In addition, Yoshimoto Kogyo said "Umeda KagetsuFrom Monday to Friday only during the daytime (from 12:30)Flower flower vaudevilleThe program was composed mainly of young people belonging to Yoshimoto and freelancers.
