Thanks for your visiting my page on the QRZ.COM

I was first licensed in October 1966. Since I am a crazy lover for 10m band, I have been very active on 10m band ever since. Also I am an U.S. county hunter on 10m band. As of today, I have confirmed 2200 counties only on 10m band. I would like to have a schedule with stations in rare counties in the U.S. on 10m band when the 10m band condition becomes better.

My another hobby is a Japanese traditional storytelling, Rakugo. Please refer to the pictures below which show my Rakugo performance in the theater.

Rakugo is a popular form of comic monologue in which a storyteller creates an imaginary drama through episodic narration and skillful use of vocal and facial expressions to portray various characters. Typically, the storyteller uses no scenery; the only musical accompaniment is the debayashi, a brief flourish of drum, shamisen, and bamboo flute that marks his entrance and exit. The storyteller, dressed in a plain kimono, crosses to stage center and seats himself on a cushion before his audience, with a hand towel and a fan as his only props. There he remains until he has delivered his final line, usually a punning punch line (ochi; literally, “the drop”). This is the characteristic ending from which the term Rakugo was coined, the word being written with two Chinese characters meaning “drop” (word raku, also pronounced ochi) and “word” (go).

In a Rakugo performance the interplay between performer and audience is extremely important. Since the repertory of classic Rakugo is small, aficionados have heard the basic story many times. They delight in the storyteller's particular version, his arrangement of familiar episodes, and appreciate his timing and the verisimilitude of the details he adds, such as the sound of sake as he pours it into his imaginary cup. The introduction to the story proper must be completely original. The plots of the stories are never as important as the characterizations in them, for rakugo pokes fun at all manner of human foibles.
