    Hi,

    All the five sample English sentences seem to have the same action in common: to go. So, while the -tekuru or -tekimasu form has several meanings, one common meaning should be considered: i.e., the person in question is to go and then come back.

    Given that, the 2nd to 5th sample English sentences can be translated using -tekuru or -tekimasu, whereas sentence 1 cannot.

    If the 1st sentence were "Miss Kataoka has been to Japan to get married.", then it could be translated as follows:

    Kataoka-san wa Nihon ni itte kekkon (wo) shite kimashita.
    (the -tekimasu form)

    Kataoka-san wa Nihon ni itte kekkon (wo) shite kita.
    (the -tekuru form)


    I hope this helps. :)
