From Japan Today:
Strong winds hit wide areas of western Japan on Tuesday, prompting the weather agency to warn people in other regions, including commuters in Tokyo, to brace themselves for gusts and possible disruptions of public transportation.
The winds disrupted operations of airplanes and trains, including shinkansen trains, mainly in western Japan in the morning, the operators said. A woman was killed in an accident in Ishikawa Prefecture which police say might have been caused by strong winds.
Japan Airlines said it has canceled 160 flights that include almost all of those leaving or arriving at Tokyo’s Haneda airport from 3 p.m. onward.
All Nippon Airways said it has canceled 83 flights including those linking Haneda with Kansai and Osaka airports in western Japan.
