Pop superstar Lady Gaga visited Japan for a charity concert to raise funds for victims of the March 11 earthquake and Tsunami in the country.

Lady Gaga held a news conference with Japan's tourism agency where she urged the people to visit the country, as the tourism industry in the nation has been hit by the disasters.

I would like to use my position here today and all week long to run around Tokyo enjoy the beautiful city and kiss all the beautiful little monsters and scream at the top of my lungs that everyone should come visit this beautiful place, a Reuters report quoted Lady Gaga as saying.

Japan’s tourism dropped by 50.4 percent in May compared to the same month a year ago, according to the Japan National Tourism Organization.

She donated more than $1 million personally for the relief efforts in Japan, apart from organizing fund raising programs, CNN reported.

Lady Gaga will appear at MTV charity concert on Saturday.

Here are some photos of her Japan tour:
