Forecasters had warned of potential record wind speeds for a typhoon in the region, and non-mandatory evacuation orders were still in place at 8:00 am (2300 GMT) for almost 340,000 people.

Hundreds of thousands of people in the greater Tokyo area have been advised to evacuate as forecasters warned the rain and wind could break records.

More than 100 flights to and from airports in the Tokyo area were canceled on Monday, including 49 Japan Airlines flights and 41 by All Nippon Airways, according to the airport website.

Many flights from Tokyo's Haneda airport were canceled from Sunday evening. Almost 340,000 people in Tokyo were under evacuation advisories while some 2,000 people in Chiba were subjected to mandatory evacuation orders when the storm hit, Japan Today reported.

The powerful typhoon is one of the strongest on record in the Kanto region of eastern Japan, and the strongest storm to hit the Tokyo area in several years.

Around four to five typhoons make landfall in Japan every year, but it is unusual for them to do so near Tokyo.

Whilst there appeared to be far more posters endorsing the 2020 Olympics in Japan than the World Cup, England will at the very least be greeted by a welcome banner at Miyazaki Airport and there is excellent excitement in the coastal vacation resort about their arrival.

Streets normally busy with commuters walking or cycling to train stations were deserted.

The French team managed to sneak in just ahead of the typhoon and reach their training camp near Mount Fuji.

Before flying out from the United Kingdom yesterday, Jones said that his side would have to be "comfortable with uncomfortable" if they were to win their second-ever World Cup, but it's unlikely he would have expected that discomfort to come so early in their tournament bid.

There are concerns that the storm could worsen already severe food shortages in the country.

But following close on the heels of the storm forecasters say temperatures are due to soar.
