    The storm also disrupted travel for many during a three-day holiday weekend, with train services halted, highways closed and 240 flights cancelled.

    High-speed bullet trains resumed service after shutting down on Sunday morning leaving travellers stranded at stations.

    Power outages hit 744 households while some regions also had water cut off by landslides.

    The Japanese Meterological Agency said that rain would weaken as Man-yi heads to the Pacific Ocean by Monday.
