Tom Cruise left a permanent mark on Tokyo as he became the first foreign actor to have his hand print molded for a spot on a downtown Tokyo square honoring celebrities.

Pressing his right hand into a mold of gray clay, the American actor flashed a "thumbs up" Wednesday to a horde of media and fans gathered in the rain.

His hand print is set to be transferred by the end of the month onto Tokyo's Nemu no Hiroba, which features metal plaques with the hand prints and signatures of famous actors.
