Why not come into contact with old stories of Shizukuishi?(2018.6.4)
Old stories and folktales are not only about Tono. Many folktales are also told in Shizukuishi. Why not listen to these stories live?
They would of course be in in Japanese however, the warmth of the Shizukuishi dialect as spoken by the storytellers should come through to you.
The storytellers belonging to the “Shizukuishi Storyteller’s Association” are people who grew up hearing these folktales directly from their grandfathers and grandmothers.
Why not get in touch with a different kind of Japanese culture?
