Japanese storytelling art in international schools

Kazuyo Burland, a former NHK newsreader, is now revitalizing the popularity of “kamishibai” (Japanese storytelling) by introducing it to international schools in Japan.

The origins of this ancient art of storytelling go back to the twelfth century, when it was used by Buddhist monks to tell tales with morals.

Kazuyo has always enjoyed introducing Japanese culture to people from around the world, and has performed at the American School in Japan, St. Mary’s International School, and Tokyo International School. Her storytelling is appropriate for students from kindergarten up to high school age. For more information, please email [email protected].
