Hanks posted photos of him enjoying his time with the delighted folks on his Twitter account. He can be seen playfully posing with his “crew” for some selfies in the restaurant.
The tweet, posted to the actor’s 12 million+ followers, has been widely shared and retweeted. RocketNews24 translated some elated Japanese Twitter users’ comments on the photo:
“Wow – it’s so great to see him out and enjoying a regular Japanese meal!” “The drunk men at the table next to him will now be seen by millions of people around the world!” “Tom Hanks blends in so well with the other diners that all I can see is a middle-aged man!” “I had to look at this for a second to find out which one was the movie star!”
