Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong continues tradition of posting super candid photos while on holiday

You may not agree but this is what a real influencer looks like.

You might remember a bunch of photos from Goh Chok Tong’s trip to Langkawi earlier this year.

Here’s a bit of a refresher.

From Marine Parade to Osaka

He continues this tradition of posting candid shots on his Facebook page.

Here he is eating ice cream in Osaka.

Despite his best efforts at remaining “incognito”, it isn’t difficult to pick out the towering former Prime Minister of Singapore in a crowd.

Goh posed for a few pictures after being spotted by Singaporeans in the popular entertainment district of Dōtonbori in Osaka.

He also posted a few pictures of an Okinawa version of a lion dance, or Shishi-mai.

Here are some pictures of the “fraternal twin brother” of the Singapore lion.

Here’s a nifty little video of the Okinawa version of the lion dance.

Here’s also some pictures of an absolutely massive tuna from his time in Okinawa.

It seems that Goh is visiting multiple cities in Japan — he mentioned bumping into Singaporeans on family holidays in Okinawa, Osaka, and Kyoto.

He also noted that many tourists from China were also visiting Japan.

If you’re on holiday in Japan right now and notice an unusually tall older gentleman making his way through the bustling streets, you might want to stop and take a second look.
