Tens of thousands of people are still enduring a situation without power after the typhoon. Some areas are yet to have electricity or water supplies. But most rail services are back to normal.

About 48,000 homes were still without electricity on Monday night.

130,000 homes had no running water as of 5 p.m.

People are also having problems with mobile phone reception in some areas.

Most bullet train services have resumed. But the Hokuriku line, which connects Tokyo with Kanazawa on the Sea of Japan coast, is running a restricted schedule.

Local trains in the Tokyo area are largely back to normal.
