Start your flight in summer season, early in the morning. I recommend to set the weather to "few clouds" and to fly around 5000 ft.
- We will now “jump a bit” in our itinerary and commence the flight way up at the coast of the sea of Japan, but still staying in the southern part of the main island of Honshu
- Hour flight starts at Izumo, a city that gave the Battleship Izumo its name. But Izumo has a much more important meaning for Japan. Izumo is the very centre of the Shintou religion. In October every year every shintou god (and there are many) will meet at Izumo Grand Shrine – in one of the many shrines located there. Its importance cannot be overestimated. You will see the shrine to your right when we leave Izumo.
- After leaving Izumo and taking a turn back we head for the city of Matsue, home of the beautiful Matsue Castle.
- As we approach Sakaiminato, we fly over the bridge of Eshima – the Eshima Ohashi.
- Flying southeast now to admire Mount Daisen and the National Park Senjosanmanhonsakura (the park of the thousand cherry blossoms). The cherryblossoms won't be here in MSFS 2020 because, well, we have no seasons... Yet.
- After WP11 you may see two quite impressive caves
- Continuing now towards Tottori. Sounds familiar? No, its not from “My neighbour Tottori” – the famous anime. Tottori is the least populated prefecture of Japan. It features also the only real “Sand Dunes”. Right at the end of our flightplan, after the last waypoint and on your final approach you can see the dunes below you. Try not to crash 😉
