To install this add-on download the zip file and unzip into the flight sims community folder easy as that.
If you install any 3rd party japan add-ons in future you may need to order my add-on below them in the content.xml folder. to do this follow this file path below: 
go to drive c > users > your username > app data > local > Packages > Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe >
local cache > double left click the content.xml folder and open with notepad.
When in the content xml just make sure my Japan add-on is below any other japan content so their update doesn't overide my edits unless you intend to then it doesn't matter.
This is what you need to copy and paste below other Japan add-ons:
Build 2.0:
-Fixed the last of the river mouth dark patches.
-removed water covering features.
-added water to fix coastline edges.
-added some ships when appropriate.
-added some water to a couple of rivers where it was missing.
-completed first pass round mainland japan.

  

(DO NOT EDIT ANYTHING IN THIS FILE just copy and paste and make sure all lines line up)
I will add I think but not certain that the sim re-writes the content.xml folder at every start up.
(I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE HOWEVER UNLIKELY IT IS SHOULD YOU MESS ANYTHING UP IN THE content.xml folder.) 

Make sure to click follow when downloading so that you will be notified when a new update is released.
There is a donate button if anyone wants to reward me for my work, but will never be compulsory and no pressure to donate.

I've been using this with SU5, so you can update your pink warning bar to green OK.

in the Community folder?
Nice Work ! thx
Thank you for this. I don't know Japan so the more detail the better as I am enjoying looking around.
Such dedication! Thanks so much, it really looks great!
"completed first pass round mainland japan."
Great job!! Only 6999 islands to go 😊
ありがとうございます
You should send Asobo a bill for all of this though something tells me your not done. This stuff is so beyond me but nobody likes water that acts like ground. Thank you so much for all you've done on this !
Thanks for the update to Japan!
Appreciate your hard work! Thanks very much!
Great work! it is possibile in SDK improve the quality of water mask? With more transparent water from Orthophoto?
This is awesome, as good as the legendary Thames update. These kind of fixes should have been really included in official Japan update. It may not seem like much but for an island country surrounded by water, these seemingly small water fixes make a lot of difference. Harbors and river outlets are much more interesting areas to explore now. One tip - I assume that a lot of us here will already have other Japan addons installed - please outline the procedure to remove conflict with your mod in the description. Bear in mind we may all not be tech savvy here. Also a question. Which area did you focus so far the most? So i can know where to explore first.
Thanks for making Japan even better in MSFS2020. If able, pls add 'Buymeacoffee' and I'll shout you a mocha!
Thanks matey also appreciate the rating. I have to finish another add-on first but that should be finished in the next few days then I will resume work on this japan update.

I will fix the whole north side of Japans river entrances for the next update. Then I will start uncovering hidden items and add water to rivers that are missing it.
appreciate the hard work
