INBOUND travel to Japan suffered only temporary disruption today, as Typhoon Melor slammed into the Japanese mainland.

There were cancellations or delays to bullet train services, while major railway routes in the Tokyo metropolitan area were suspended, and more than 450 domestic flights were cancelled.

JTB Singapore inbound senior manager Koji Susuki said some of the agency's passengers were scheduled to fly to Osaka from Singapore last night but had their flight delayed until this morning. Apart from that though, there had not been any other disruption. "The typhoon impact was considered quite light this time round."

NTA Travel Singapore managing director Shigeru Nakashima likewise said the inbound business had not been affected.

A statement on the Japan Airlines website said domestic and international services would continue to experience "irregular operations" due to the typhoon.
