Japan - June 24th, 2009

The island of Hokkaidō is located at the north end of Japan, near Russia. The center of the island has a number of mountains and volcanic plateaus, and there are coastal plains in all directions.

Of particular note in this image is the interesting grid-like pattern of fields, criss-crossed diagonally by streams and rivers, on the northeast end of the island, part of the Nemuro Subprefecture.
