Tropical Storm Yagi can be seen swirling to the south of Japan on Tuesday.
Some remote Japanese islands were drenched by the spiraling bands of Tropical Storm Yagi as the disturbance passed about 200 miles to the south of Tokyo.

Yagi brought locally heavy rain to a long stretch of coastline of Japan’s Honshu Island that included Osaka and metropolitan Tokyo, according to the Japan Meteorological agency.

Cold waters just to the south of Honshu were responsible for the storm weakening rapidly and posting a significant threat to only shipping lanes in the far western Pacific.
