Ikeda Rakugo Town

Today I strolled around the street in Ikeda. Ikeda city is located in the northern part of Osaka Prefecture. It is a small city with an old-fashioned atmosphere. I like to walk through its shopping street to find something interesting.

This is Ikeda Rakugo Museum. Rakugo is a Japanese comic story told by a storyteller sitting on a zabuton cushion in kimono. Inside the museum you can see the real rakugo stage.

I found a tea shop selling "Green Tea." It is SWEET iced Japanese tea. It fits hot and humid summer.

A good-looking pair of wooden clogs called geta. I want to walk in these geta making a nice sound.

  1. It was windy, gloomy weather today, wasn't it?
    I suppose there was't many sightseers in the town.
