Image Caption:
STS047-90-077, 078 SAPPORO, Hokkaido, Japan. The city of Sapporo
is visible in some detail as the gray area against the mountains.
Surrounding low country is intensively exploited for agriculture.
The agriculture is located mainly in the large valley of the
Ishikari River which can be seen winding through the fields. The
river injects a prominent sediment plume into the Ishikari-wan
Bay.
