Jacko at 'fan appreciation' events

Smiling and waving to screaming fans, Michael Jackson has arrived in Japan for his second visit in recent years to host an exclusive party and sponsor a fan art competition.

Jackson made his first official foray back into the spotlight after his acquittal on child molestation charges in June 2005 with an appearance in Tokyo to accept an MTV Japan award last year.

A relaxed-looking Jackson, 48, in trademark sunglasses and black leather jacket was ushered by guards past hundreds of screaming Japanese fans at Narita Airport, some carrying signs that read "We love Michael" and "Welcome to Japan."

At the VIP party, guests paying £1,750 will get to mingle with Jackson and spend 30 seconds to one minute each of "exclusive face time" with the Gloved One, according to organisers. It was unclear whether the star will perform any songs.

While in Tokyo, Jackson will also host a fan art contest for Japanese who cannot afford VIP tickets, organisers Davis, Bain and Associates said.

"Over the years, as Michael Jackson has performed in cities around the world, he has been pleased, honoured, and impressed by the large amount of fan art of him," the organisers said.

"He would like to meet fan artists, and more fully appreciate and enjoy their creative expressions."

Three winning artists chosen by Jackson will have brunch with the star and their picture taken together.

Jackson, one of the best-selling artists of all time, has lived abroad since his acquittal, forsaking his Neverland Ranch in California for residences in Bahrain, France, and a castle in Ireland.

Jackson's VIP meet-and-greet party is scheduled for Thursday, with the fan art contest on Friday. It is not clear when he will leave Japan.
