Japan's Transport Systems Return To Normal


Japan's transport systems return to normal

Transport systems in Japan are returning to normal after Typhoon Hagibis caused widespread cancellations and disruptions over the weekend.

Most bullet trains have resumed. The Yamagata line is expected to be back to its regular timetable from around noon on Monday. The Hokuriku line is operating on a restricted schedule between Tokyo and Nagano.

Local train services in the Tokyo area are almost fully restored.

In the resort town of Hakone, near Tokyo, landslides have blocked a train line that is popular with tourists. The operator says it may take some time to fully resume service.
