March 27, 2021 - Western Japan and the Seto Inland Sea



Sun was shining over the island nation of Japan on March 26, 2021. The
Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board NASA’s
Terra satellite acquired a true-color image of Western Japan on that
same day.

Slightly smaller than the state of California, USA, Japan stretches
over 1,900 miles (3,000 km) from the northeast to the southwest and
lies between the North Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Japan. The highly
volcanic archipelago contains four main islands and about 6,848 smaller
islands and islets. The main islands seen in this image are Honshu—the
largest and most populous island; Kyushu in the south; and Shikoku
tucked along the southeast flank of Honshu. Part of southeastern South
Korea can also be viewed in the upper left. The elongated Tsushima
Island, Japan sits halfway between Kyushu Island and the South Korean

The Seto Inland Sea (Setonaikai) sits at the heart of Western Japan.
About 400 km (250 mi) long, Setonaikai is tucked between the large
islands of Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu. Historically an important trade
route with calm waters, it is dotted with about 3,000 small islands,
several of which have become popular tourist areas. It is also the home
to Setonaikai National Park, the largest national park in Japan.
