Located in the vicinity of Hozenji Alley in the south part of downtown Osaka, Torii Hall has a seating capacity of 100. The greatest appeal of this small hall is that audiences can see closely, and therefore feel familiar with, performers on the stage at various kinds of performances, including rakugo storytelling shows, concerts and plays. Since 1991, the "Torii Storytelling Show" has been held on the first day of every month. The show is very interesting to watch and listen to, because it always features a wide variety of performers _ not only young and new but also veteran and popular comic storytellers. The show is organized by Kobeicho Katsura, a famous rakugo storyteller. Among popular programs at the hall are those followed by Harihari nabe (Japanese-style stew cooked with whale meat at the table), a famous local specialty of Osaka, at the famous whale meat dish restaurant Tokuya, and those which tour around Osaka with storytellers to learn about culture of Osaka, held several times each year.
