For a rough idea of the extent of this view, the control tower at Haneda Airport can be seen above the shipping terminals at right, and a large chunk of Setagaya is at left. The Landmark Tower is located directly on the Yokohama waterfront, so for reference to what this view includes, refer to this:

Nuthin' special...

I'm more suprised about the visibility...you could *barely* make out the Landmark Tower from Shinjuku Park Tower when I was there in '06 and it was fairly clear outside.
