Most Transportation Services Back To Normal

Most transportation services back to normal

Railway services in the Tokyo area have returned to normal from the first run on Monday after Typhoon Hagibis caused disruptions over the weekend.

Shinkansen bullet trains were running as normal on Monday on the Tokaido, Tohoku, Akita and Joetsu lines.

But there are still disruptions to the Hokuriku Shinkansen line. It's operating between Tokyo and Nagano stations and between Itoigawa and Kanazawa stations. But services are suspended between Nagano and Itoigawa.

The Yamagata Shinkansen resumed normal operations around 11:20 a.m. on Monday.

Passengers can check the latest information on railway company websites.

Some Japan Railway services in the suburbs of Tokyo are still suspended, as are parts of the Odakyu Electric Railway's Odawara line.

Keio Railway says the Tama-doubutsuen line is still out of action. The Takao line will resume operations on Monday afternoon.

Tobu Railway says here will be no services on the Sano line on Monday, and only parts of the Nikko line will be running.

Some expressways are yet to reopen. Parts of the Chu-oh expressway and Ken-oh expressway are closed due to mud flowing onto the road.

The operators say it may take several days before the expressways are open again.

Domestic flights schedules are mostly back to normal, with the exception of some Monday morning flights.
