Kanjiro Sawaki was the Japanese Rakugo (comic story) reciter. The name of En-u derived from the fact that he was regarded as the right-hand man of Encho, the character "u" signifying "right." Kanjiro Sawaki and Kosan Yanagiya were masters of comic storytelling in the Taisho Era.
Kanjiro Sawaki was born in 1860, in Japan.
He was trained by Enkitsu and Encho.
His son succeeded to the name of En-u. Kotaro Bando, popular movie actor, is a grandson of En-u. En-u succeeded to the name of Encho while in sickbed.
