Britney Spears Takes Japanese Jaunt

Matt Donnelly / December 14, 2008

Looks like Britney Spears is getting the most of her Circus promotion—the singer is booking equal amounts of work and play while hyping her comeback disc. obtained exclusive images from Spears herself, enjoying snacking and splurging in Japan, her first visit to the country in five years.

Spears took off from LAX on Thursday with security and assistants in tow, headed for an appearance on Fuji TV’s HEYx3.

Brit is seen walking quaint cobblestone streets, perusing sidewalk garment racks and even popping into a sweets shop for some indulgence.

Although she’s abroad, you can still catch the Womanizer crooner on this Tuesday’s episode of Ellen, where she’ll be belting carols and spreading general holiday cheer.

And since you’re wondering, Brit’s adorable checkerboard overlay is Ben Sherman’s “Chichester” coat. Say Domo!
