Typhoon Hagibis triggered floods and landslides as it battered the country with wind speeds of 225km/h (140mph).
Rivers have breached their banks in at least 14 different places, inundating residential neighbourhoods.
The storm led to some Rugby World Cup matches being cancelled but a key fixture between Japan and Scotland will go ahead on Sunday.
Hagibis is heading north and is expected to move back into the North Pacific later on Sunday.
