Hundreds of flights have been cancelled in Japan as the country is hit by a powerful Typhoon, which has delivered heavy rains and floods.
Typhoon Roke is on course to hit Fukushima, home to the nuclear power plant where engineers are still struggling top bring under control after the March tsunami.
There are concerns that heavy rain could force radioactive water into the sea.
An earlier advisory urging a million people to evacuate their homes was later lifted, although 330,000 people remain at risk.
The typhoon made landfall on earlier this morning in Hamamatsu on the main island of Honshu, bringing high winds and torrential rain.
The storm is tracking a path across Tokyo, where businesses and schools have closed early, towards Fukushima prefecture and is then expected to travel up along the north-east coast, which was battered by the March earthquake and tsunami.
In addition to more than 200 cancelled flights, several motorways have been closed and bullet train services have been suspended.
Earlier this month Japan was lashed was Typhoon Talas, leaving 100 dead in the deadliest storm to hit in the country in 30 years.
