Typhoons

Japan is constantly visited by Typhoons, mostly due to the fact that it is near the West Pacific Ocean, which generates many tropical cyclones. . Seven typhoon will pass through Okinawa every year, and three can even impact mainland Japan. Typhoons turned the tide during a crucial battle in Japanese history, when the Yuan Dynasty of China decided to invade Japan. The storm destroyed the Chinese fleet and Japan was able to survive the attack. The Chinese didn't give up, they attacked again but was stopped by another storm. However, typhoons still cause a large amount of damage each year, and they can occasionally cause casualties.
