16-year-old Canadian teen pop sensation Justin Bieber has arrived in Tokyo, Japan today for a short appearance there.
Justin in fact has informed his more than 2 million followers on Twitter that he's gonna check out Tokyo and buy some sneakers. "I'm in Tokyo, Japan!!! Slept almost the entire flight. Trying to get to the hotel and then go out and check out some sneaker stores."
Biebers fans in neighboring Asian countries have mixed reactions. Some feel excited while others are envious and many are hoping that Bieber will also tour other Asian countries.
One fan tweeted, "I wanna be in Japan with Justin Bieber shoppin' for sneakers." Then another one said, "Attn Justin Bieber, no one in Japan cares about you." And someone from Japan has tweeted, "That lil boy Justin Bieber is here in Japan and everybody's freaking out. No lie I didn't know who he was until I saw his video."
After Japan, Justin Bieber will fly to Sydney, Australia for a short TV appearance on the morning show "Sunrise" of Channel 7.
Now, some Asian fans are asking, "When will Justin Bieber come to our country?", a common question from those in Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore.
I've read somewhere on the net that Justin Bieber will only stage concerts in some Asian countries if his latest album 'My World 2.0" will be sold out there or tons of units will be sold. I'm not sure if it's true, but it might be true.
