Heavy rains and strong winds hit Japan on Saturday as a powerful typhoon forecast as the worst in six decades approached landfall.
Typhoon Hagibis, brought heavy rainfall in wide areas of Japan.
Areas affected included Shizuoka and Mie prefectures, southwest of the capital, Tokyo, as well as Chiba to the north.
The rains caused rivers to swell, flipped anchored boats and whipped up sea waters in a dangerous surge along the coast.
The downpour flooded some residential neighbourhoods and left people to wade in ankle-deep waters and cars floating.
Authorities warned of mudslides, common in mountainous Japan, and several flood evacuation warnings were issued in Tokyo areas.
