Incredible Video Of Osaka

Sun Jan 23, 2011 6:21 pm

By far the best video I've ever seen of a Japanese city from the air - the blade runner style of metropolis just going on forever and ever until touchdown in the urbanized surroundings of Itami airport.

Really reminds me of the view when approaching MEX. Buildings... buildings... buildings... steep 110 deg left turn... buildings getting closer, and closer, and closer... oh shiii... *gasp* a runway! *touchdown*     

EDIT: great example http://www.flightlevel350.com/Aircra...ufthansa_Aviation_Video-16636.html

Very good video .... man what a metropolis indeed. !

I love the name Osaka .... always have for some reason . I named my band Osaka in the late 80's it just sounded cool ! And our drummer had a rising sun on his Bass Head!

Yowsa!! That's kinda mindboggling. Thanks for sharing.
Come with me, there's a place I want you to see, where the leaves are dark, I've got a hiding place in central park.

Reminds me of the approach into Sao Paulo - endless rows of buildings upon buildings as far as the eye can see - one of the World's largest megacities.

Awesome find - thanks for sharing. I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent in Osaka last year and the video got me feeling all nostalgic for the place!

Good find.

My take for the long awaited new B-787 inaugural first commercial flight with ANA:
Haneda to Itami and return.

  

I give it 90% chances the other 10% for:
Haneda-Kansai airport (KIX) and return.

  
There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde

GREAT video. This is an excellent overview of Osaka.

I used to live in Kawachi-Nagano, a suburb of Osaka! I have flown out of both Itami (before Kansai opened) and Kansai! My family would sometimes go watch planes just before the runway at Itami! Check out a.net pictures of Itami. GREAT place for spotting! Kansai also is great for spotting.

Anyone spending time in Osaka needs to also visit the Modern Transportation Museum. It showcases the history of Japan's train history. It has some excellent train exhibits as well as a couple small aircraft.

Very cool. Kind of like going through Tokyo on the train - the cityscape seems to never, ever end!

EPIC EPIC EPIC!!!!!!!!!! Thanks sooooooooo much. It really makes me wonder how people can be on laptops or sleeping or whatever with a truly staggaring view like that out the window.
From the airport with love
