Regarding Typhoon Jebi, which made landfall in Kansai on the morning of September 4
On September 4, Typhoon Jebi, an extremely powerful storm, made landfall in Japan, causing damage in the Kansai region, which includes Osaka.
We would like to express our deepest condolences over the precious lives lost and offer our heartfelt sympathies to all who suffered damage from Typhoon Jebi.
Kansai International Airport was closed for a time, but domestic flight service resumed on September 7, and international flight service will resume on September 8, both partially.
As for Yumeshima, the future site of the Expo, the planned land height was enough so that no flood damage occurred, even at high tide. The Yumemai Bridge and Yumesaki Tunnel, which lead to the candidate site, were also undamaged.
