Four people have been killed and more than 120 people were injured in a powerful typhoon that battered Japan over the weekend, local media reported on Monday (Oct 1), as the storm's aftermath brought travel chaos to Tokyo.
The storm brought widespread destruction and left more than 750,000 homes without power. Major airports throughout Japan were closed, including Tokyo's Narita and Henda, and trains were halted.
The typhoon comes less than a month after typhoon Jebi hit western Japan causing extensive damage and at least 11 deaths, making Jebi the strongest storm to hit the country in 25 years.
