Kurukuru Tei is a yose theatre in Los Angeles where the Toneido school of rakugo live and perform.


To get to the backstage, one enters through the staff entrance, which is generally only accessible to Taifu Toneido, Uendo Toneido, and Geiru Toneido, however close friends of the troupe such as Bucky Whet and Simon Blackquill are granted permission to enter the backstage hallway.

Within the hallway, there is an exit to the yard outside, where Geiru's pet dog, Jugemu, lives.

Across from the exit to the yard is the door to the dressing room, where the members of the Toneido troupe prepare to get ready to perform. The dressing room is where the murder of Taifu Toneido took place.

At the end of the hallway is an exit to the stage, where the members of the troupe perform. The stage is broadcasted to the television in the dressing room.


  • The theatre's Japanese name is "Kurukurutei" (来来亭), which literally means "come come place". In a more general sense, "kurukuru" is used similarly to the English term "hang out", giving the name a meaning of "hang out place", or "a place to hang out". Additionally, "kuru kuru" is also used in reference to something that is "spinning around", similar, but distinct, to onomatopoeia. This may have been the influence for the tornado-based puns used in the names of members of the Toneido School.
  • Its English name "Kurukuru Tei" comes from its original Japanese name.
