On Thursday, West Japan Railway Co. will suspend almost all of its shinkansen bullet train services. Services between Shin-Osaka and Kokura will be canceled while those on Kyushu between Kokura and Hakata will be significantly reduced, the company said.


Central Japan Railway Co., an operator of shinkansen services between Tokyo and Shin-Osaka, and Kyushu Railway Co. said they will cut the number of their bullet trains Thursday.

Shikoku Railway Co. said it will start canceling some of its train runs Wednesday and plans to entirely suspend services in its service area on the western main island on Thursday.

The season's 10th typhoon with an atmospheric pressure of 965 hectopascals at its center was packing winds of up to 144 kilometers per hour as of 1 p.m. Wednesday, the agency said.
