Waraidome (笑イ留)

Waraidome, or “ending laugh,” is a type of kyōgen performance ending with a great laugh. For example, in the kyōgen play Suhajikami, a sake and ginger salesman laugh together to end the play. The great guffaw, unique to kyōgen, exhilarates the audience and sets them in a pleasant mood.
