As a European, typhoon don’t mean much to me, we have not got these events, we don’t know what happens during a hurricane/tornado/typhoon
After a season of typhoons, I start to get a small view (small, very small). One thing I noticed is how nice the weather is just after and how the atmosphere is suddenly quiet, clean and the weather nice.
Last September, I got stuck for 3 hours in a shinkansen on my way to Hiroshima, waiting for the typhoon to pass by. We could see torrential rain around us in the train. However, the moment, it was gone, the train went full speed again, and one hour later, I arrived into a calm city, everything in place, all clean, good temperature, beautiful weather
Japan has fantastic infrastructure and is equipped to anticipate those events, it makes a huge difference if we compare with not so advanced countries or not so equipped nations, I must admit.
Another thing is that the sky is absolutely gorgeous the day after the typhoon, really impressive
