Satellite image of the Tokyo Metropolitan Area. The colours in land areas have been processed to approximate to natural tones. Three main rivers are seen: Tama-gawa (near bottom left), Arakawa- hosuiro (upper centre), and Edo-gawa (upper right). The small green area at centre frame is the grounds of the Imperial Palace. The port area is shown very clearly, the isolated block-shaped islands are reclaimed land. The runways of Tokyo's Haneda Airport are seen at bottom centre. The urban area in lower left is Yokohama, now part of the Tokyo metropolis. Tokyo's population is about 15 million (1989). This image was gathered by a Landsat satellite on 4 November 1984.
