Typhoon 15, Shiraishi Island, Japan

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.
