Friday Foto: Tokyo

Tokyo, Japan

This week I had the pleasure of riding a UH-1N helicopter over Tokyo.  My hubby's group had shown its appreciation to the spouses of the flight and maintenance crews by hosting a Spouse Appreciation Day where spouses could either ride a C-130, C-12, or UH-1N around Japan.  Two years ago, I had the special opportunity to have my first ride in a military aircraft, C-130, with my hubby as the co-pilot; and it was an awesome experience to see what it's like for him on a regular day.  This time around, I thought it would be cool to ride the UH-1N helicopter over Tokyo, and it was an amazing experience!  It was so fun to recognize the places we've visited and walked around from above.  The number of buildings seemed endless with the mountains and ocean bordering them.  I especially enjoyed seeing patches of trees throughout the city.  This shot of the Tama River splitting the city is my favorite shot; and if you look closely, you can see the Shinkansen on one of the bridges!
