The typhoon made landfall Wednesday morning in southern Kyushu island, Xinhua reported citing the Japan Meteorological Agency.
Heavy rainfall forced the evacuation of about 7,000 people in several prefectures, including Ehime, Tottori, Okayama and Shimane, since Wednesday morning, Japan's public broadcaster NHK said.
In Ehime on Shikoku island, heavy downpour of 100 mm per hour were recorded, leading to a mudslide on the Matsuyama expressway.
Officials said no one was injured on the road, but the motorway was partially closed.
