A typhoon hit Japan on Tuesday morning, making landfall in Nagasaki on the southwestern main island of Kyushu. The arrival of the typhoon brought heavy rain and winds of up to 151 kilometres per hour.
Due to power blackouts and landslides caused by the storm, transport temporarily came to a standstill earlier in the day. At least 47 domestic flights were cancelled, affecting around 3,000 passengers.
The typhoon is forecast to continue toward eastern regions of Japan, moving along pacific coastal areas of the archipelago, and is expected to be downgraded to a tropical depression by Wednesday morning.
