About the Katari Japanese Storytellers:
In 1994, a group of Japanese teachers in Toronto area got together and started telling Japanese stories both in English and Japanese for two purposes: to diffuse Japanese culture to Canadians at large, and to pass their heritage on to the next generation growing up here in Canada.
Yusuke Tanaka, one of the founding members, gave the group its name, the Katari Japanese Storytellers. They have been actively performing as a group, and as individuals, at schools, community events, and at the annual Toronto Festival of Storytelling.
