There were scenes of excitement at Tokyo's International Airport as the unmistakable Jolie-Pitt clan made their way through international arrivals.
Hundreds of cheering fans had gathered to welcome Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to the country.
The stunning actress smiled warmly as she walked along hand in hand with three-year-old Vivienne, an Pax – seven, who was adopted from Vietnam.
Behind, her partner took charge of five-year-old Shiloh, six-year-old Zahara – adopted from Ethiopia – and Knox, twin brother of Vivienne.
The oldest of their brood, ten-year-old Maddox, walked on his own between his parents.
The little ones took the attention in their stride. After years of jet setting as part of one of the world's most famous families, they must be more than used to it by now.
Just a few days previously the family were in Budapest while Brad filmed scenes for zombie flick World War Z.
And they spent a good deal of time over the summer living in London while he shot the movie in Cornwall and Glasgow, which was transformed into a post-apocalyptic Philadelphia for the movie.
This week the family are in the Far East while Brad promotes his new movie Moneyball.
