Kamigata Rakugo Charity 上方落語の慈善

Last night while at the Hanjôtei for Somemaru’s show I noticed that their was a box in the dressing room for donations to the Red Cross of Japan, to be used to help those in northern Japan affected by the recent disasters. I was impressed by this, but absolutely amazed when I saw posted the amount (with receipt from the Red Cross) donated in cash on April 1, 2011: ¥7,000,000 (≈ $80,000USD)! The total collected by the Hanjôtei (Kamigata Rakugo Association) as of April 7 was ¥7,174,123 (≈ $84,650USD)! It looks like Osaka hanashika and their fans alike are joining the masses, working hard to help the very unfortunate. Respectable indeed.

昨日、染丸師匠のショーのため繁昌亭にお邪魔していたとき、東日本大震災救援募金箱が楽屋においてありました。これを見て感動しましたが、廊下にある掲示板に4月1日に日本の赤十字に渡した募金の金額(領収書)を見てさらに驚きました。700万円!!4月7日までに繁昌亭(上方落語協会)に集まった募金はなんと7,174,123万円!大阪の噺家もそのファンも被災された方たちのために頑張っているみたいですね。尊敬します。
