    Couldn’t find the roller coaster, but I did find a luxury yacht listing about 10 degrees near the left side and also near that and above it there is a building about to fall over. Leaning Tower of P, eat your heart out. Also found a string of red fairy lights 3/4 of the way across and about midway from top to bottom. It is also interesting to me that there are no more bright lights showing than there are…..

    Yacht? Show me the yacht, please. Roller coaster is a horseshoe-shaped structure, on the midline, approximately 5/8 of the way to the right, above and to left of bldg. with blue and orange sign….

    Unfortunately, the scenery isn’t very beautiful. The Mori tower itself is an interesting subject, with its gigantic shopping mall, live theater, & unusual courtyard. It’s hard to get an HDR image taken at the right place & time.

    OH!!! That’s the roller coaster? That’s what I was calling a string of red fairy lights. 🙂 The yacht is about 1/3 of the way down the left side and a skinch in from the left. You can see two rows of windows and the superstructer. It’s about to ram into the top of a large building that is midway down the left side. Just to the left of the yacht are two turquoise somethings. Cool photo anyway you see it.

    I forgot to mention that you must look at the enlarged version of the photo to see these interesting objects. Thanks for providing it.
