MisterX6's sceneries have long been considered the gold standard for X-Plane scenery development. Many recognize him for his high-quality freeware sceneries covering iconic American airports such as San Francisco, Portland and Boston. More recently, he has been releasing sceneries under the alias ShortFinal Designs for payware products, of which he has released three: Salt Lake City (KSLC), Albuquerque (KABQ) and Los Angeles (KLAX).

Today, Threshold has been given the privilege of exclusively debuting MisterX6's latest freeware product - an "early Christmas gift" - to the X-Plane community.

Japan Pro is MisterX6's first region-based scenery and covers all the islands of the Japanese archipelago. Its main features are completely overhauled regional autogen as well as custom objects used to enhance the cities of Tokyo and Naha.
