Our friend China, lead singer for Pink Martini, was on tour in Japan at the exact same time we were there.  Happily, we got to hang out with her in Tokyo and Kyoto, and see her perform in Yokosuka.  We came to the concert for China’s incredible voice, but we stayed for “The Handshake.”  Check out this uniquely Japanese after-show ritual.(P.S.  Look for part two “China In France” when our schedule intersects with hers again in Paris next April.)
