Let’s put aside the pettiness of *someone’s ‘*nationalism’ for the day and hope every one of Japan’s visitor’s makes it to their homes safely.

Well, typhoons use to be worship as the divine wind that brough Japan victory in the past. As the typhoon is not even making landfall so i guess is kinda fitting for it's arrival as the final day of the olympics. Japan did break it's historic record of gold medals.

Hope everyone stay well and go back home safely. Thanks for all the athletes participation and hard work. See you all in Paris 2024.

Did this create the Typhoon? Not sure how you're relating this to the Typhoon, but blaming the Olympics for it is a new level.

Just received a typhoon warning on my phone for western Japan tonight. Probably more of a tropical storm.

Zichi: I think that’s the next one. Have you checked out the app “windy”?

I meant the typhoon for which you received the warning is the next typhoon after the one that skimmed Tokyo.

The other one (not mentioned in the article) is cutting right across Kyūshū, the Inland Sea, and across the western Chūgoku end of Honshū tonight and through into tomorrow morning.

PS The wind and rain the second one is bringing will cover most of Japan.

Did it already pass? It barely drizzled this afternoon..

Isn't it just a tropical storm? Isn't it a typhoon? Ah. Both. One of each. Headed to Tokyo.

There are two typhoons, and one is almost gone. Both could affect flights, though.

South East Yamaguchi is getting pounded by heavy rain and wind right now. Worst is yet to come!

We’re getting hammered now, right across Shikoku and Chūgoku… and it’s lights out for now. I’ve adjusted the windows, but I’m ready to jump up and deal with unexpected stuff.

Stay safe everyone.
