Water from a tidal surge floods the Kansai International Airport in Izumisano city, Osaka prefecture on Sept. 5, 2018, after typhoon Jebi.A bridge connecting Kansai airport to the mainland was damaged when it was hit by a 2,591-ton tanker pushed by winds from typhoon Jebi in Izumisano, western Japan, Sept. 5, 2018.

Jebi, reportedly the strongest typhoon to make landfall in Japan since 1993, has been downgraded to a tropical storm and is heading north of Japan.

"Domestic flights in the Kansai worldwide airport will resume tomorrow, and global flights are set to resume operation as soon as preparation work is done", government spokesman Yoshihide Suga said. Over 3,000 travellers were left stranded after the damage to the bridge left the artificial island housing the airport temporarily cut off.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said on Wednesday that about 470 people had been hurt in the storm. It is the third-biggest airport in the country by passenger numbers after Tokyo's Haneda and Narita.

Kansai is an important airport for visitors to Osaka, Kyoto and Kobe.

She said the company was not expecting a major impact because its plant in Yokkaichi in central Japan had not been affected by the typhoon.

He enjoyed visiting Japan with his wife and was saddened to see the storm damage, although he felt lucky he was not at the airport.

Over 200 flights were canceled for Wednesday, affecting over 30,000 people due to the airport closure. Appearing relieved but exhausted, passengers said they had to spend the night feeling uneasy in the dark.

Typhoon Jebi "will clearly put a dent" in inbound arrival numbers, said Andrew Jackson, head of Japanese equities at Soochow CSSD Capital Markets in Singapore.

He said 2.4 million households had lost power in the storm, and service had been restored to only half so far. "It was a rather scary night, as we were so isolated", she said. Major beverage maker Kirin Co. suspended production at its brewery in Kobe, according to Kyodo News agency.

A man in his 70s died after he was reportedly blown by strong winds to the ground from his apartment in Osaka prefecture.

The Universal Studios Japan theme park in Osaka was closed for a second day Wednesday but said it would reopen Thursday. Police in Osaka reported five more deaths in the prefecture, some due to flying objects, and others due to falling from apartments. A storage building collapsed on a 71-year-old man in Shiga prefecture, while another man in his 70s died after falling from a roof in Mie.

An intense heatwave that enveloped the country immediately afterwards killed more than 130 people, as temperatures soared above 40 degrees Celsius in some places.
