Nagoya is an option.
I doubt qantas will shift to there... Besides,
It'd a long journey from Hyogo if thats the case
It could be a real problem, although iirc, Nagoya also has no curfew, so it could take extra flights.
Itami Airport at Osaka is also still an international airport.

Itami is pretty small though.

I think Kobe and Itami airports will have some international flights in the near future because Kansai airport has been becoming very busy and more and more foreigners will come to Osaka / Kyoto area. Kobe is a new airport opened in 2006 and it has 2,500m runway. Kobe airport to the downtown is only 18 mins by train!

Looks like the early autumn weather switch will hit next week.
Ok, so after the typhoon, the stationary boundary is reestablishing itself over western Japan... there's still a few hot days left over the weekend by the looks, but I reckon summer will be over by mid next week!!!! :D

JMA say this summer = June - July - August were 1.7 degree hotter than average season in East Japan, and it's the hottest record. West Japan was 1.1 degree hotter than average.

A very hot summer - there and here.:cry_ubb:

JMA say this summer = June - July - August were 1.7 degree hotter than average season in East Japan, and it's the hottest record. West Japan was 1.1 degree hotter than average.
Tokyo & around the Kanto Plain area, was hotter in July than in August. July was the hottest on record(along with March & April), but June and August were not the hottest on record.
Above average(daily maximum):
Mar: +4.3C (record 16.9C)
Apr: +4.1 (record 22.1C)
May: +2.4 (24.6C)
Jun: +1.6 (26.6C)
Jul: +3.8 (record 32.7C)
Aug: +2.0 (32.5C)

Summer was 2.44 degrees above average, but most of that was due to July.
Spring was 3.61 degrees above average, much more than summer.

What happened in Hokkaido? Did the nuclear plant shut down for the whole island?

Snow above 1800m in the Northern reaches of Hokkaido on Wednesday. Only light stuff though.
We've had highs in the low 20s and lows around 19C the last few days in Yokohama & Tokyo.
Expected to be 27 today & 30 tomorrow, but the mid summer weather cycle is broken, and it's now into the "late summer" cycle where we get mid to high 20s. This generally lasts about 4 weeks, when we get then next step change, "early autumn"..... and the slippery slide to WINTER!!!!! :D

Wednesday at my place we pulled a big door out. We sat in the restaurant commenting that the breeze was so cold it must have snowed somewhere. It was like it is in Sydney when it snows and you get the wind from the south west. So good to know our opinion was correct.

Today we are at Hakuba. It is hot and humid.

Hot and humid is all relative ;) Hakuba was mid 30s 4 weeks ago, and it's around 20 degrees there, and will probably get to around 24-25 today (so thank your lucky stars!!! :D

well, although Sat/Sun are forecast to be 29C degrees in Tokyo, 15C is forecast tonight and only 22 tomorrow! They look like being the lowest temperatures since around May.

Looks like other bomb of a typhoon to hit southern Japan near the end of the month.
Yeah, hard to say. Usually ones that initially track towards Taiwan, will pass more to the west of Kyushu, weaken and pass over the Korean peninsular or China, but it's quite unpredictable.
Looks like it could get to Cat4 or Cat 5 though, so it could be dangerous.

Talked to my translator today. She said that because it was a hot summer there will be a lot of snow this year. She is a local farmer's daughter.
Heh, heh.....
As you know, I look at all this stuff.....
Last season was big about 3 weeks early, but a cool summer.
Other summers, HOT:
2003-04 : early, good season, hot summer
2007-08 : v. early, good season, hot summer
2010-11 : late, good season, hot summer
2012-13 : v early, good season, hot summer
2013-14 : early good season, hot summer

However, there is some evidence on a small sample to say that a hot summer often has a good season afterwards...
And 80% were early.

No hot summers led to a poor season following, in the last 15 years.

Yes it was a very vague broad statement. It was more that the locals are not worried about a bad season which they were in some other seasons.

Well, now it seems that Typhoon Trami looks like it will do an abrupt right turn away from Taiwan, and hit Kyushu on Sunday.
Currently Cat 4/5, winds of 245kph, gusting to just over 300kph!!!!

Plus what looks like a follow up one a couple of days later :oops:. Both seem to hit and track almost directly up through all main islands of Japan. Could be a very wet start to October.

Looks like Trami is weakening but still going to dump a lot of rain over Kyushu and southern Japan.

Weakening, currently Cat 2/3, winds of 165kph, gusting to 205kph.
Typhoon Trami looks like it will move quickly across Kyushu on Sunday morning, and past Tokyo Monday morning.The fast movement should reduce the amount of rain in any one place.

I don't want rain any more here = Chiba to Ibaraki's coastal area. It has rained almost everyday since the end of August. September is Autumn rainy season here. Average September's rainfall is already too much for most vegetables and fruits, and this September's rainfall here is about 150% or even more compared to average season. It seems Hokkaido is a lot drier than usual.

Amount of precipitation between this August 28th and September 26th compared to average season.

Incoming on Sunday, Typhoon Trani.
Currently Cat2 or 3 by the looks. 165kph, gusting to 202kph.
The eye looks like making land fall in Kyushu about Sunday 10am, and tracking to the north of Tokyo on Sunday evening.
