Strong waves due to Typhoon Lupit slammed into the coast of Japan yesterday.
Footage shows powerful waves crashing onto the shores of Hayama, Kanagawa on August 9. A local can be seen braving the winds to surf in the water.
Typhoon Lupit made landfall in Kyushu on August 8 and is expected to bring strong rain and winds across the northern and eastern parts of the country. It has since weakened to an extratropical cyclone, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency.
