i had a japanese roomate when i was studying at my university and he asked me if i could tell asians apart by nationality. i honestly told him i couldn't and he said he couldn't either but he could tell who was japanese and who wasn't.

Most of the time, yes. And if they speak, I can definitely tell.

Actually it's not unusual for most people to be unable to tell asians apart. In fact, some asians also can't tell the difference too. I'm a singaporean chinese but have been mistaken as a japanese even by japanese people...

yeah!!! i'm the same i can sometimes tell by just looking at their looks and if a have doubts, i'll listen to their conversation and i can already tell. When me and my family were about to go to america their were many businessman from many asian country, i'd just listen point out to my sister what their nationaly is. my sister would always ask because she couldn't tell the difference and she was pretty amazed.

only if they have an obvious name.
or they break out into the language.

but just by appearance -- no.

It depends on the clues that could appear once I watch it. One would be the language or the writing if it's in Hangul or Japanese calligraphy or chinese characters. Another could be the speaking lines. Another would be the landmarks or places where they hold the scenes. The features of actors are sometimes tricky.

I can tell the difference of so many Asian races. Though it may sound offending but I can tell through the eyes whether one is Japanese, Chinese or Korean ( this is just my subjective assessment and never will be objective or so to speak)....But it takes me a lot of time in distinguishing some features of the people of the my country's neighbors.....(Indonesians, Malaysians, Cambodians, Thais)
