From Press Release:

This morning on Xbox Wire, we announced that the world in Microsoft Flight Simulator is getting a major content update with World Update I: Japan, now available for all players across Xbox Game Pass for PC, Windows 10 and Steam starting today.

World Update I: Japan features a high-resolution digital elevation map across the entire country, high-resolution 3D photogrammetry for six prominent Japanese cities (Sendai, Takamatsu, Tokushima, Tokyo, Utsunomiya and Yokohama), and six exquisitely hand-crafted airports (Hachijojima, Kerama, Kushiro, Nagasaki, Shimojishima and Suwanosejima).

We also added a new pagoda-style architecture, and hand-crafted nearly two dozen custom landmarks and points of interest to invite simmers to explore the area’s timeless World Heritage sites, towering neon skyscrapers, iconic bridges and sacred shrines.
