Justin Bieber spotted in Shibuya
Adoring Justin Bieber fans were quick to spot the US heartthrob wandering the streets of Shibuya this week.
Surrounded by bodyguards and with a pair of sunglasses to cover his face, the Canadian singing sensation went about his day shopping and sampling the buzzing atmosphere in one of Tokyo's top entertainment districts.
It is thought Bieber was taking a day out to see the sights after performing at the Saitama Super Arena on Monday night as part of his worldwide tour.
The star was able to shop in peace, but the scenes contrasted starkly with those of him getting out of Narita Airport, where he was greeted by a crowd of frenzied Japanese girls.
Bieber's career took off in 2008 when his videos were discovered on Youtube by US talent manager Scooter Braun. His hits include Baby, Favourite Girl and Love Me.
Tokyo regularly plays host to global superstars, with Eric Clapton recently announcing his 20th tour in Japan.
