Japan from above

A few more photos from the flight:

First sighting of the Japanese coast (near Niigata)

A lot of people tend to associate Japan with skyscrapers. However, about 80% of the land-mass is mountainous (that's mini-mountainous on the whole). Here's a couple of shots of what I consider to be 'typical Japan'.

And finally, Japan from ground level: the lake in front of our apartment.
