George and Amal Clooney are once again proving why they're Hollywood's golden couple.

The Oscar-winning actor and human rights lawyer touched down in Tokyo ahead of the Japanese premiere of Tomorrowland.

The couple may have wed seven months ago, but they're clearly still in the honeymoon phase as they landed at Haneda airport, hand in hand.

Amal opted for a colourful Missoni shift dress, while George sported his new trademark black leather jacket as they made their way through the crowds of fans and paparazzi .

George recently gushed about his other half, whom he wed in a lavish Italian ceremony last September after a whirlwind xxx romance, saying:

"I'm a much happier person and we have a very happy life. We enjoy many of the same things and I very much enjoy the projects that she takes on because they have real consequence.

"I have someone who I can talk to about anything and someone who I care more about than I've cared about anybody.

And the normally private actor has been uncharacteristically candid when speaking about his wife, during his first international press tour as a married man. He even divulged exactly how he proposed.

"When I asked her, we had never talked about it," he explained. "There wasn't like, 'Hey, maybe we should get married.' I literally dropped it on her. I was at my home. I queued up a playlist of some of my Aunt Rosemary's songs and I asked her and she just kept saying, 'Oh my God' and 'Wow.' Completely unexpected.

"And finally I just said—listen, I'm 52 at the time—and I said, 'I've been on my knee now for about 28 minutes. I gotta get an answer out of this because I'm gonna throw a hip out. I may not be able to stand back up."
