Justin Bieber (maybe) spotted in Shibuya by adoring fans

Photos began appearing on the Twittersphere late Sunday night purportedly showing Canadian teen heart-throb Justin Bieber out and about on the streets of Shibuya. Judging by the pictures, the star was largely ignored by Shibuya shoppers as he walked the streets surrounded by friends and plain-clothes guards, though in all honesty with his hood up and a pair of enormous shades covering most of his face, we’re not entirely surprised.

Bieber is currently in Tokyo as part of his worldwide tour and performed at the Saitama Super Arena on Monday night.

Evidently arriving in town in time to shake off the jet lag and ensure he looks his baby-boy best, the star appears to have taken a stroll through trendy Shibuya Sunday to take in the sights. A couple of Japanese Twitter users were clearly on the ball, however, and – no doubt alerted to the presence of someone potentially famous by the large men in black – noticed the little guy whom they seem pretty sure was Bieber.

I hope he didn't throw a hissy fit because of that.

It is strange that no one noticed him. Must suck being escorted everywhere like a prisoner

JoshuYaki: I don't think prisoner is the right word... spoilt child perhaps? He was in China recently and had these "Body Guards" Carry him up the steps so he wouldn't have to walk, not very much like a prisoner, if you ask me.

It was probably just some little girl.

Nice. But given that there have been no reports of abandoned exotic pets nor a spike in the road accident rate it may just have been his doppelganger. Is he playing any concerts in Japan right now?

He performed at Saitama Super Arena on Monday night.

I'm not sure which of the guys in the picture are likely to be Bieber's "friends".

The Biebs!, The Bieber! The Biebinator! The Biebmeister! The Bieb-a-tolla of Rock'n Rolla!

LOL!!

Hopefully because nobody gave a crap who he was.

I saw a YouTube video once of a one year old mimicking Bieber's song 'Baby Baby' (or whatever it's called), and that seems about right in terms of the age group his music should appeal to. Doesn't hold a candle to the interview where Bieber doesn't know what the word 'German' means, but still. I just hope he enjoyed the 'freedom' of not being noticed and is not upset that people weren't flocking around him for pics and autographs. Much as I loathe the young man's music, it's got to be nice for him to feel 'normal' once in a while. At least, I would hope so.

Did he spit on anyone here? Be careful, JapanToday: Bieber's agents might try to have this photo and your "provocative" posters comments removed. What a tool... maybe people did recognize him, they just didn't care.

It's amazing how everyone puts down the Biebs, yet they click on the article and spend time commenting on it. Way to go, Justin, more unbeliebers fueling your fame! Now THAT calls for a LOL!

With all the problems Japan is facing right now, he's in Japan too?
