Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and daughter Suri touched down in Japan today for their first family trip to the Far East.

The trio arrived at Tokyo's Narita International Airport after an 18-hour flight by private jet from the U.S.

Despite the long-haul flight, Tom and Katie looked surprisingly fresh faced, although two-year-old Suri did look a little tired as she kept hugging her mother.

The Cruise family was greeted by hundreds of screaming fans who had camped out to catch a glimpse of the Hollywood stars.

Tom signed autographs for fans while Katie was given several soft toys as gifts for her daughter, including a cuddly elephant.

In Japanese, Suri's name translates as pickpocket, something the youngster was certainly not guilty of, however.

'Japanese people love Tom and Katie,' said a waiting fan.

'Their daughter is super cute - her name is a bit funny but she is beautiful.'

Suri also means 'princess' in Hebrew and 'red rose' in Persian.

After leaving the airport, which is an hour drive from central Tokyo, the family jumped into a helicopter to beat the traffic.

They got into a promotional helicopter with Valkyrie on the side and it flew them straight to the roof of their hotel.

The Japanese premiere for Valkyrie takes place March 11 in Tokyo.

Meanwhile, Katie is now coming to the end of her punishing Purification Rundown diet.

But it seems she isn’t stopping there with her commitment to Scientology.

It has emerged the 30-year-old actress resolves problems with Tom by making weekly written confessions, as laid out in the Scientology code.

‘Katie has to confess to something as minor as forgetting to tell him she has met with a friend,’ a source revealed.

‘If she commits a transgression against the moral code of their marriage, she has to tell Tom in writing, giving full details of the time and place and what happened.’Mail Online reported.
