At least 35 people in Okinawa and Kyushu have been injured by the strong winds, according to reports.
In Shizuoka, central Japan, three Chinese nations were swept away by high waves triggered by the typhoon on Sunday afternoon as they were fishing on the coast, a local police spokesman said, adding that wTwo of them were rescued safely but the remaining one, aged 26, is still missing."
