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.
In fact, in the Philippines, Filipino fans have been buying the Bieber album. On the latest album chart released by Odyssey music stores in the Philippines, Bieber album is already the #1 top-seller. Check it out:

2) 'Ikaw Na Nga' - Willie Revillame
3) 'The Fame Monster' - Lady Gaga
4) 'Byahe' - Noel Cabangon

7) 'I Star 15: Best of TV & Movie Themes' - Various Artists
8) 'Bugoy Drilon 2nd Album' - Bugoy Drilon
9) 'Only One' - U-Kiss
10) 'Addicted to Acoustic 2' - Princess Velasco
Justin Bieber shakes “fins” with one lucky dolphin as he visits Atlantis Paradise Island with some friends earlier this year.
The 16-year-old musician, who also filmed his music video for “Never Let You Go” at the resort, spent a fun-filled day at the resort exploring, playing with the sea lions and dolphins and having a good time with his friends who accompanied him on the visit.
Over the weekend, Justin performed his hit song, “Baby” with rapper Drake at the 2010 Juno Awards.
Taking his pop music arsenal to the far east, Justin Bieber was spotted arriving at Narita Airport in Tokyo, Japan today (April 20).
The “One Less Lonely Girl” singer was greeted by throngs of enthusiastic fans as he made his way through the terminal, sporting a blue hat, blue shoes, and a black leather jacket.
In related news, “American Idol” executive producer Cecile Frot-Coutaz recently sang Bieber’s praises as an inspiration to his generation, hence she chose him to appear on “American Idol Gives Back.”
"All the decisions are a matter of balance, and it's a matter of scheduling the various performances that we have in the best way possible. So more specific, because you know we have themes every week, depending on our theme, we'll have a mentor. Depending on the theme and the mentor, we'll have performances that suit our organics of the results show."
"Other people who want to be on Idol like Justin, Idol Gives Back was a good night for him to be in because he's obviously phenomenal and he's young and he's a real inspiration for the young generation. So it was a really good really good fit for him to be in that special episode."
JBShrine has exclusive pictures of Justin arriving in Narita Airport in Tokyo. These were taken just moments ago.
This is even more annoying than the Australian thing.
Justin's taped performance of "Baby" will air on the show after all.
Idol Gives Back airs tonight on Fox.
