Japan - January 16th, 2011

The city of Tokyo and its surrounding urban area appears as a grey area around Tokyo Bay on Japan’s Honshu Island. The bay’s irregular coastline is due to multiple artificial landfills.

In the upper half of the image, the Tone River can be seen flowing through the metropolis and into the Pacific Ocean by Choshi City. Some snow can be seen near the river and in the hills and mountains to the north.
