Snow Lion Japan tour pt6: Saitama

My last concert of the tour with Tenzin and Taro was a charity show held in an art gallery in a quiet village in the hills of Saitama, raising funds for a new Tibetan university in India. Tenzin had to leave before the night was through so that he could catch up with HH the Dalai Lama in Nara the next day, but the rest of us got up to some good country style partying... This was my last concert of the tour because I was to head to Fukuoka with Yuki while Tenzin and Taro still had a couple more shows in Tokyo.

The event was also the closing party for an exhibition by local potter, who opened proceedings with an all-inclusive "kanpai!"

Tenzin's cousin Dolma Tsering is a leader in the Free Tibet movement in Japan.

After the official proceedings we sat around the fireplace, chatted and jammed...

I've created a facebook album with all the photos from this tour, including a few not on this blog.
