Description

Envisat captured this image of the Japanese archipelago on 21 May 2006 with its Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) instrument. Japan's four main islands, running from north to south, are Hokkaido (visible in the top right corner), Honshu (the visibly long island stretching in a northeast-southwest arc), Shikoku (visible just beneath the lower part of Honshu) and Kyushu (hidden by clouds).
