Image Caption: Tokyo, (35.5N, 140.0E) one of the most densely populated regions on Earth, and capital of Japan, is seen through the clouds. The city is at the north end of Edo Bay and Yokohama, partially cloud covered, is along the bay's western margin. The gray patches are close-packed urban urban areas and the brown valleys along the eastern side of the bay are cultivatedd, mostly rice. Although the Imperial Palace is obscured, many other features may be seen.
