Thanks and God bless!

Narita isn’t near anything. That leaves Haneda.

Haneda is a stones throw from the Sea Forest Waterway, which is where rowing is taking place:

The rescheduled Olympic Regatta is underway! The rowing competitions were shown in the USA on Wednesday, 28 July, and numerous aircraft could be heard overhead during the events. Apparently, now that Tropical Storm Nepartak has largely dissipated and is to the northwest of the islands, the current winds are coming from the north, because flights from Haneda sound as though they are taking off from Runway 4, overflying the venue in the process. (Could someone please post the METARS?) I could even tell from their sounds that a couple of the aircraft were using Rolls Royce engines!
