One person has been killed and two others are missing in heavy landslides in Sagamihara, near Tokyo. NHK World's Mami Mochizuki is in the city with the latest.
She said: I'm near the bottom of a large landslide that took the life of a woman in her 70s.
Behind me, crews are piling up debris from several homes which were pushed down the hillside by the sheer force of sliding mud.
This is a mountainous area, but it's uncommon to see a landslide this large right here.
I spoke with one man who lives nearby and was warned by fire officials to evacuate shortly before this happened.
He said, " I heard a big noise on my way to the evacuation center. It was scary to see how the landslide totally destroyed a house. The damage in this area is worse than I thought. Let's hope the situation doesn't get any worse."
Another neighbor told me the movement caused an electrical fire.
About one kilometer from this spot, the fire department is still searching for a missing man and woman.
This particular landslide was about 100 meters wide, but driving through the city, I could see evidence of smaller landslides.
It's unclear how long the cleanup will take. Water is still draining into a fast-moving river downhill from here.
And, with more rain in the forecast, city officials are calling on residents to stay prepared for a further emergency.
