A powerful typhoon has battered the area south of Tokyo, but side-swiped the city itself as it moved up the coast towards Fukushima.
At least 13 people were killed and dozens wounded on Izu Oshima island – where the typhoon triggered landslides and the huge winds flattened dozens of homes.
Wipha has weakened from its peak, when it was packing winds of up to 180 kilometres over Izu Oshima, which is around 120 kilometres from Tokyo.
In the capital itself, residents battled against torrential rains and wind during the morning rush hour. Hundreds of commuters were also left stranded by trains that were delayed or cancelled.
As Wipha headed northwards, operators of the wrecked nuclear plant Fukushima were taking precautions and said offshore work had been halted.
