Mizushima Hiro
4500 handshakes in 2 days

Mizushima Hiro shook hands with 4500 people over 2 days
22nd November 2008

On the 21st of December, actor Mizushima Hiro (24) held a memorial handshake event at the Kinokuniya bookstore in Takashimaya Shinkuju to commemorate the sale of his 3rd photobook HIROMODE (on sale 22nd December).

He shook hands with about 4000 of his fans in a fan club event at C.C. Lemon Hall in Shibuya on the 20th and about 500 on the 21st. A spokesperson from his agency said, "Shaking hands with 4500 people over a stretch of 2 days, he has tired himself out." In an unusual development, this led to an event without the usual interviews by reporters after. Through his agency, Mizushima sent a message,"4000 people attended yesterday and 500 today, I am very happy."

I think he just doesn't want to deal with the inevitable pesky questions.
