How do you tell asian people apart?

Whenever my asian friends are referring to other asian people, they don't refer to them as asian (as us whities tend to), but what kind of asian; it's uncanny. And I'm not talking about their individual cultures, but their physical characteristics.

Somehow they're able to tell the difference between Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Japanese people, etc. just by looking at them.

My question is: HOW?!! What are the particular physical characteristics that differentiate asian ethnicities from each other?
