Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko.

St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - The royal arrival of Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko came early afternoon at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.

Greeted by local dignitaries, they were taken by motorcade to downtown St. Louis under the Arch for a public ceremony. Then it was off to the St. Louis Art Museum for an invitation-only reception.

The royal couple later took in a few innings of the Cardinals-Pirates game at Old Busch Stadium.

NewsChannel 5's Ken Jones filed this report.
