Michael Jackson Visits Tokyo Orphanage
Michael Jackson is doing a tour of Asia and made a stop in Tokyo to visit a children's orphanage. This is his first public apperance since being acquitted of child molestation charges.
After weaving through dozens of screaming adult fans outside the downtown orphanage, Jackson was ushered into a gymnasium, where more than 160 children age 3 to 18 and nuns in gray uniforms waited.
"I love you," Jackson told the cheering crowd.
Jackson was in the capital to accept MTV Japan's Legend Award during an earlier ceremony. There, he choked up as he thanked fans for their loyalty.
His visit to Japan is the first leg of an Asian swing that will include stops in Singapore and China.
He also was scheduled to meet with members of the Asian business community during his six-day visit, his publicists said.
How do you say "Jesus juice" in Japanese?
