Videos show Typhoon Lan making destructive landfall in Japan
At least three people in Japan have been killed after Typhoon Lan slammed into the island on Monday.
Tens of thousands of people have also been forced to evacuate after the intense Category 4 storm made landfall in the Shizuoka prefecture, which lies to the south-west of Tokyo.
The country experienced winds of up to 198km/h (123mph), according to the weather agency.

Footage captured by some social media users across Japan show the impact of the typhoon:
Even vehicles were not spared.
A train in Japan's Yokohama city was on Monday morning hit by lightning, causing it to breakdown, and for smoke to start filling into its carriages.
According to twitter user @sotetsu_akb, passengers were only evacuated after 15 minutes of waiting onboard the train. Thankfully, nobody was injured.
Astronaut Paolo Nespoli, who was onboard the Cupola module of the International Space Station, had also hours before tweeted pictures of Typhoon Lan as seen from space, as it made its way towards Japan.
The typhoon has since weakened to a category 2 storm, and was moving northeast of Tokyo on Monday afternoon.
It is expected to become a tropical depression by Tuesday.
