Dramatic scenes as Typhoon Phanfone batters Japan
A powerful typhoon has brought many parts of Japan to a standstill and briefly battered Tokyo before heading out to sea.
Typhoon Phanfone has killed at least one person, a US airman on Okinawa who was washed away by high waves.
Thousands of households lost power; school, factories and roads were closed; and transport was affected - including flights and the bullet train.
