 An offshore typhoon is bringing rain and high winds to Japan's northeast coast as it tracks north after giving Tokyo a good soak overnight.

Airlines cancelled dozens of flights to and from Tokyo and other affected areas today, but no major damage has been reported.

Japanese media say five people have been injured, including two who fell and broke bones.

Typhoon Shanshan had weakened somewhat by midday, with maximum sustained winds of 108 kilometers (67 miles) per hour and gusts of up to 162 kph (100 mph).

It has not made landfall, sparing Japan from the worst of its rain and winds.
