Just got a D5200. Cannot seem to get REALLY sharp images.

Hey guys,

I just picked up a D5200 with the 18-55mm Lens kit and have been shooting with it.  I live in Tokyo so I have endless photos that I can take but when I take shots from really high up in buildings looking down into the city I cannot seem to get the entire shot in focus.  The buildings in the foreground are in focus but for example in the shot I have attached to this post you can see the buildings in the rear and tokyo tower are all.... muddy looking.

If could be a setting in the cam or it could be shaky photography.

Any suggestions?  ideas?

Thanks in advance and Im VERY happy to have upgraded back into the DSLR world.
