Who is Bunshi Katsura?

Bunshi Katsura was born on 16 July 1943 in Osaka Prefecture.

In 1967, he appeared on a late-night radio show and received overwhelming support from young listeners.

In 1969, he was appointed as a television programme moderator, and was in charge of numerous programmes.

In 1976, he launched his Rakugo production group which still actively holds shows today, and has over 275 works to date.

Winning the Cultural Arts Festival Award twice, he also received numerous awards from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. And in Autumn 2006, he was awarded the Purple Ribbon of Honour.

He was appointed President of the Rakugo Association in 2003, and is devoted to the development of the construction of the “Tenma Tenjin Hanjo Tei”, a theatre-museum developed specially for Rakugo culture.

From his contributions to the promotion of Osaka’s culture, he was invited to the Autumn Garden Party in 2007, where he was accorded the prestigious Kikuchikan Award.

On 16th July 2012, he inherited the name “6th Generation Bunshi Katsura” from his previous master. Currently holding many Rakugo events and lecture meetings both in Japan and aboard, he continues to focus on the cultivation of a new generation of Rakugo storytellers, as well as giving educational lectures at universities for specialised courses.
