  STS090-743-28 Nagoya Area, Honshu, Japan April 1998
The urban center of Nagoya, a Japanese city of over 2 million people, is located along the northeast corner of Ise Bay. Located along the southeast Pacific coast of Honshu Island, Nagoya is acknowledged to be a major port, transportation hub, and highly industrialized city of Japan. The urban, built-up city of Nagoya merges with numerous smaller cities and even limited cultivated land, producing the extensive lighter-colored landscape that dominates this southerly view of Ise Bay. Like most of Japan (where mountains occupy about 80 percent of the total land area) wherever alluvial soils and flat plains are found urban development and agriculture compete for the use of the land. Several short-flowing rivers, including the Nagara River, can be seen entering the northern end of Ise Bay. A sediment plume is visible flowing southward from the delta created by these rivers into Ise Bay. The darker, partially cloud covered terrain west of the Nagoya metropolitan area are rugged, forested mountains (volcanic in origin).
