The Seto Inland Sea crosses the center of this orthorectified image. On the northern shores, various cities in Yamaguchi Prefecture, can be observed, including Ube (left).

To the south, projecting between the Suho-nada Sea in the Seto Inland Sea and the Iyo-nada Sea, the Kunisaki Peninsula can be seen. It is formed of large conical volcanoes including the 731 m-high Mount Futago, in the northeastern part of Oita. Twenty-eight ravines extend radially from the center of the peninsula.
