An estimated 3000 have been trapped at Kansai terminal. No flights for a week apparently... https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/sep/05/typhoon-jebi-thousands-stranded-at-island-airport-in-japan

Quite an adventure.  Hope all goes well and you get a speedy(ish) return.

We are in the lounge awaiting our flight to Helsinki.  Because the typhoon was an "Act of God", we will not be able to claim for hotels etc.  But we will get reimbursed for our travel from Osaka to Nagoya....

mm i'm not too sure about that. All travel insurance cover natural disasters or "act of god" and the payout depends on the level of cover. i've just gone into my product disclosure statement (PDS) under RAC travel insurance  and it says under emergency enpenses that it covers "Cover for emergency Additional Accommodation, Meal and Travelling Expenses if Your Trip is disrupted due to a natural disaster, serious weather event or even lost passports."

 You might wanna go over the fine print and see where you can claim from..

i was able to claim mine back in 2009 for damages to personal belongings etc. we did not have any delay at that time so that didn't need any claiming.

Here's some good footage of the tanker that hit the bridge causing it to be closed....



And the damage it caused - no wonder train operations are still suspended....
