Bieber visits Japan earthquake victims

Justin Bieber visiting quake victims in Japan

Justin Bieber has been meeting victims of Japan's earthquake and tsunami.

He chatted with students from the hardest hit areas and wished them a brighter future. "Things can get better and things will get better. There's only good times to come," Bieber said.

Bieber is in the country as part of his My World tour, but lots of other musicians cancelled their shows in Japan because of radiation fears.

He has already contributed to a charity album for the quake victims as well.

A powerful earthquake hit the north-east coast of Japan in March, causing a tsunami.

Hundreds of people were killed or injured, lots of buildings were damaged and big nuclear power stations were forced to shut down.
