Japan typhoon sends gyoza and other strange objects flying

When Typhoon Man-yi hit Japan on Monday, it left much of Kyoto below water. Japanese also reported via Twitter sightings of strange objects swept up by the winds.

User gotomashiko posted a photo of five pieces of gyoza, or Japanese dumplings, that mysteriously appeared on the street after the typhoon: "Where did this come flying from?"

Following which, _t_7san posted a photo of what looked like a Nintendo Wii steering wheel and m4_kn saw melon bread that had flown onto a second-storey balcony after the storm.

A Japanese child also lost his 'duel disk', used to play trading card game Yu-Gi-Oh! and it was spotted by R_C_VOLTEX.

RocketNews24 ended its blog post about the typhoon with a large salamander that washed up from the Kamo River, post typhoon.

Typhoon Man-yi forced thousands of people in western Japan to evacuate their homes, and some 500 domestic flights that were mostly scheduled to depart from Tokyo, were cancelled due to the typhoon.

The storm then made its way to northern Japan, where the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant is located.

This forced Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) to release tainted rainwater into the ocean. TEPCO said this was pooled rainwater and not leakage from the tanks.

The radioactivity of the water was low enough and did not exceed the government's limit of 30 becquerels per litre.
