Japan as seen from the air


Japan, forming an arc on the eastern edge of Asia, is a land of beautiful landscapes made all the richer by the progress of the four seasons. On top of its beauty, it is a leading industrial nation some 130 million people call home. The Mainichi Daily News has been photographing Japan from the air for more than 80 years, recording the passage of its seasons, the changing faces of its cities and the lives of its people. Through the over 100 photographs presented here, taken from the Mainichi’s photography airplane Phoenix II and the helicopters Rainbow, Kibo and Oruri, we hope to paint a picture of Japan over the course of 2008.
