Hongkong to Okinava

Take off from Hong Kong runway 07L. It was surprisingly calm on the airport that morning. The air traffic controllers gave us an Ocean 2C departure what would have taken us straight over Kowloon towards the sea. We asked to do some turns for sightseeing and we were granted to proceed almost how we wanted. Just enjoy the pictures that we took.

Turning towards the South East China Sea. It took us 3 hours to cross
to island of Okinawa in southern Japan.

highest building
And then there was the highest building on the earth, Taipei 101 with
509 meters. It is amazing how it stands out of the city fabric of
Taipei


building
The next images go to my wive Claudia, first for her appeal towards
Japan and second for her interest in modern architecture. Naha is
full of really nice examples of modern architecture. Kenzo Tange
seems to have left quite an impression.

start
Getting ready for the flight to Nagoya. Again it was to short to see
everything. But it was great to get an impression of the essentials.
