Morning Musume arrived earlier today at the Charles de Gaulle airport in France for their visit to the Japan Expo.
Tanaka mentioned on two blog posts that they saw many fans at the airport, which is a great thing since it shows the support the overseas fans have for Momusu and from what we can tell from the video it certainly does seem that they were recieved kindly by all European fans.
It seems that Jun Jun came out first followed by Kamei, Sayu, Gaki, Tanaka, Mitsui, Ai-chan and Lin Lin, and we get a chance to see Reina’s new darker dyed hair as well as Gaki’s longer hair (hair extensions).
For now there doesn’t seem to be that many fan reports (just quick mentions and one video) about what happened and since the video is only 30 seconds long it is somewhat understandable that the moment was a bit too fast since Momusu had to go to their hotel to prepare for some shopping and a dinner they most likely had just right now.
Hopefully fans show up tomorrow for both signing events planned (at the FNAC and Japan Expo) since it will be a great opportunity to meet and greet them.
Here is some info that has already been released about the two signing sessions tomorrow:
FNAC Champs Elysées – Thursday, July 1st at 11:30 – 12:30
- All items bought at FNAC the day before the signing can be used to get an autograph event ticket, you just need to keep the receipt and ask for a ticket tomorrow at the “accueil/welcome” booth at the left of the entrance.
- You have to buy Momusu goods at the FNAC to get a ticket, the proof of purchase will allow you to get one (prices for albums are around 30 – 40 Euros each).
Japan Expo (Signing Room #5, requires a convention ticket to enter JE) – Thursday, July 1st at 16:15 – 17:15
- – Limited to only 100 people (lottery)
Press photos of the girls arriving will most likely show up sometime soon (if there are any) so I will update with them when they are released.
The Japan Expo will take place from 7/1 – 7/4, the concert will be on 7/2.

EDIT: Another video has been released of Momusu arriving in France. This video is much longer and features footage of them getting into their buses to their hotel:
