Michael Jackson visited a Tokyo orphanage Sunday May 28th, 2006 during his first round of public appearances since being acquitted of child molestation charges last year

The self-acclaimed King of Pop made his first ever public appearance since being acquitted of sex-abuse charges last year Sunday May 28th, 2006 in Tokyo. Slated to accept MTV Japan's "Legend Award", the star was greeted by about 100 fans as he arrived in a black van.

Besides receiving the award, during the same event Jacko also paid a visit to a Tokyo orphanage, during which he told a group of 140 excited children "I love you" in Japanese.

There inside the Seibi Gakuen children's home, Michael watched a 15-minute performance of traditional music and dance by children in kimonos before speaking briefly on stage. "I'm very happy to be here," said Jackson. "I'm happy to be with you lovely people," he added.
