This kind of view really brought back a lot of memories for me of when I first went to Japan. I used to be amazed at how the urban areas of many parts of Japan just stretch as far as the eye could see. I hadn't thought about that kind of thing for a while, until I decided to post this photo. In the distance, you can just make out the big buildings of downtown Nagoya, that I posted last month (http://digitalguff.aminus3.com/image/2010-03-30.html).
Notice that the buildings are all quite small, until you get to Nagoya. That's because this is the countryside!
I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!
