As this year’s No. 7 typhoon “Rahn” approaches Japan, trains in many places in Japan are scheduled to be suspended, and more than 200 flights have to be cancelled.
According to news from Kyodo News on the 14th, some sections of the Tokaido-Sanyo Shinkansen in Japan will be suspended on the 15th. The East China Sea Railway Company (JR East China Sea) also announced on the 13th that starting from the 15th, the “Nagoya-Shin-Osaka” section will be suspended throughout the day. JR West Japan said on the 14th that on the 15th, the Sanyo Shinkansen “Shin-Osaka-Okayama” section was also suspended for the whole day.
In order to avoid the planned outage, many railway lines in Japan were seriously congested on the 14th. According to JR Tokai, the Tokaido Shinkansen will implement a temporary timetable in the “Tokyo-Nagoya” section on the 15th, greatly reducing the number of shifts. Reserved seats are cancelled, and all cars are unreserved seats. The specific number of flights will be determined according to the weather conditions.
According to reports, although the Tokaido Shinkansen does not plan to stop operations on the 14th and 16th, there may be longer delays or emergency shutdowns. JR urges passengers to consider changing their itinerary.
Aviation has also been affected. JAL revealed on the 13th that 240 flights, mainly taking off and landing at Osaka International Airport, were canceled on the 15th, which will affect about 24,800 people. 19 flights in other places were cancelled.
