Not often you get a day that clear in Tokyo.

I enjoyed having Toronto and Shanghai side by side. I often confuse those due to the towers on the right looking similar.

Look for the "bottle opener building" on the right next to the tallest skyscraper and you know it's Shanghai. I haven't been there myself but ever since my dad showed me Pictures from a trip I recoginze the building immediately.

The "bottle-opener" is the Shanghai World Financial Center, while the tallest, round one is The Shanghai Tower. I look for these two and the Jin Mao Tower.

The tokyo picture keeps on being used on this site but is so wrong. It's a stock photo someone must have created to imply tokyo but the mountain is a long way from the city and there is no way you can see it like this. On a clear day from some place its a small bump on the horizon.

True, I have been there a few times and only on a clear day you can sea mount fuji in the distance. This picture implies it's right next to Tokyo

Yes, clear days like the one in the picture are rare, but that doesn't mean they don't exist, and yes, you absolutely can see Fuji from a high place in Tokyo on a clear day.

Tokyo is less than 60 miles away from Mt. Fuji, which is not that far for seeing an ultra-prominent mountain. Just because some people don't understand perspective doesn't mean the picture is "wrong."

Your comment about perspective made me laugh! I've been to Tokyo and was lucky to get a nice clear day and you can totally see it from a high rise! Just because something is far doesn't mean it doesn't look close when staring directly at it!

Rainier is at least 60 miles probably closer to 65 miles from Seattle and I can personally attest to how prominent it is when you look to the southeast from near the top of Queen Anne Hill and that's probably at least 70 miles.

I was thinking about exactly the same thing! At least according to the site I checked, the distance between Tokyo and Fuji and the distance between Seattle and Rainier are almost identical.

It's the type of lens used for the photo - it's not "wrong", it's just the way the photo comes out. What a camera "sees" is rarely the same as what the human eye sees.

I just realized the Royal Hotel (or whatever it is called) was in the background (I didnt't notice it and I knew it was in Mecca)

Very surprised that Mecca is so low, the Kabba is iconic and so is the giant clocktower.

There aren't many muslims on this site.
