Sunday, right outside of outback steakhouse, Myself, Dan, Toshi, Alex, and a friend of Alex's, CJ, just got done eating lunch. Alex and CJ came to Osaka to go to a Hanshin Tigers baseball game, and CJ (tall white guy) was wearing a hanshin tigers jersey.
So while we're standing there waiting outside, a bus of people sitting at the stoplight start pointing at us standing there and looking at us. Then, instead of just looking for a bit and turning away, they continued to stare the ENTIRE time until the bus drove away. We waved to them and some of them waved back, but it was extremely bizarre that a bus of people would all be staring at us nonstop.
Our theory is that they probably thought CJ was one of the white guys who plays for the Hanshin Tigers and since all white people look the same to the Japanese eye, they probably thought they spotted a celebrity. No other explanation makes sense as far as I'm concerned, and if you tell me I'm wrong, you're stupid.
