At least three people were dead and more than 160 injured as powerful Typhoon Jebi - the strongest for 25 years - pummeled Japan on Tuesday, bringing torrential rains and strong winds to large parts of the country, local media reported.

At least six people have died as a result of Typhoon Jebi, according to Japan's public broadcaster, NHK. A total of 610 people were injured in 28 out of 47 Japan's prefectures. High-speed bullet train service was suspended from Tokyo west to Hiroshima, though service resumed partially later Tuesday when the typhoon left the region.

Domestic airlines have chose to cancel local and worldwide flights mainly scheduled to depart and arrive in airports in western and central Japan.

A tanker that became unmoored by the typhoon's pounding waves and wind slammed into a bridge linking offshore Kansai International Airport to the mainland, damaging the bridge and the ship and stranded 3,000 passengers overnight at the airport.

Kansai International Airport, a key transport and cargo hub that lies on an artificial island in Osaka Bay nearly directly in the typhoon's path, remained shut on Wednesday.

Japan officials have ordered more than a million people to evacuate their homes amid warnings of high waves, flooding and mudslides, said a report in Khaleej Times.

"11 people died and two are in critical condition due to the fact that the strongest in the last 25 years the Typhoon struck Western parts of Japan on Tuesday", - writes the edition.

After passing over Osaka and Kyoto, Jebi is expected to rake along or near the western edge of Japan as it travels north, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency. In 2017, the airport saw almost 29 million passengers. Businesses seeking alternate routes and tourists in a rush to get home must take a train or use highways to get to other global airports, such as Narita in Tokyo, or Fukuoka on the southwestern island of Kyushu.

Factories in the region, including automaker Daihatsu Motor Co. and electronics giant Panasonic, as well as major beverage maker Kirin Co. suspended production at most of its factories in Osaka and nearby prefectures on Tuesday, though a lot of them were expected to resume operation Wednesday, Kyodo News agency reported.
