Typhoon 15 is headed towards Japan and should hit Shiraishi Island sometime on Tuesday. If you're already on the island and are staying a few days, you should be fine. If you're trying to get on or off the island, please don't plan to do so on Tuesday or Wednesday, as the ferries will be stopped. We don't expect the typhoon to do much damage, if any, but please be aware that the weather will be rainy and windy. Typhoon number 16, also pictured above, should not affect us at all.

The forecast for the next week on Shiraishi Island is rain, rain and rain. Typhoon 16, as pictured above in this 5-day forecast, may hit Japan for the weekend Live Band & Fireworks festivities on the island. But it's still early, so we can't be sure. If you do have reservations, please stay informed by checking the Japan Meteorological Website. Typhoons can change direction and intensity at any time.

Looks like we're going to have beautiful weather for the next several days. And it also looks like Typhoon 12 is going to miss us, and take the course up the Japan Sea instead. So, we can look forward to sunny skies and beautiful sunsets.
See you on Shiraishi Island!
