Here is the scenario:
  1. The aliens want to make peaceful contact with the inhabitants of Earth.
  2. The only information they have available is imagery of Earth (essentially Google Maps with labels off).
  3. They understand that structures such as buildings and roads were built by an intelligent life-form (us).
  4. They do not have information on the political landscape of the world, only the physical.
  5. Their spaceship can be landed anywhere.
  6. They are only landing in one location.
  7. The ship will be landing.

Assuming these, where would this alien spaceship containing a diplomatic mission land?

Why land? Stay in space out of range of any human weaponry, broadcast messages, evaluate the response and determine whether or not a peaceful landing is possible/desirable.

I'm going to edit with the stipulation that the ship will be landing.

If they have any intelligence, they will keep going.
A dipomatic mission would include knowing all about the place they are about to enter before they expose them selves.
This means learning the language and the values the people share likely through radio transmission reception.
An advanced race is unlikely to just wander in and expect to have a nice welcome, if they don't even know the language nor protection from deseased and crazy people in government.
Of course unless they already have an agenda.
Precluding an alien invasion ,for the lack of a better term, disarming the poplous and forming a one world government would set the stage especially if they have key people in the diffrent governments orchestrating the events. A global control.
Aso by controling the food and food production one an also control population which would be another part of the agenda.
Inacting laws that prohibit private farming, and poisoning the ground so that it cannot produce either, by the means of ariel spraying. but call it something else to shield the real agenda.
Also using low frequency radio waves, to alter the weather and cause earth quakes in varrious parts of the world .
How do you think your micro wave works? it ain't magic.
Encourage the break down of society and strenthen the divisions among people encouraging violance reducing the population all the more.
Other wise known as the NATO agenda 21.

Maybe Tokyo b/c it is the largest metropolitan area in the world. They would do this if they want to announce their presence with pomp and circumstance.

On the other hand they might choose a fairly isolated small town somewhere so they could see what the reactions of the earthlings is like. There would also be more room to land a spaceship somewhere like that.
