First he made the ballsy move of following through with his tour dates in Japan despite radiation concerns. Now Justin Bieber has taken it a step further. The tween pop star took time out of his hectic schedule to meet with children who had been affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Bieber stuck to his guns and performed for a sold-out crowd in Osaka yesterday, then sat down to talk with almost a dozen Japanese children today before performing another sold-out show in Tokyo's Budokan, Reuters reports. Several of the kids were from Otsuchi, which was one of the towns most devastated by the disaster.

Bieber met with the fans at the U.S. ambassador's residence, where he called them "an inspiration" and assured them, "Things can get better and things will get better. There are only good times to come."
