The huge typhoon Faxai passed through Tokyo last night uplifting things that shouldn’t be uplifted as you can see from the photos. The typhoon brought so much rain that it flooded our new office destroying bazillions of yen worth of inventory. Apparently it was the worst typhoon to hit Tokyo in the past 10 years.
I’m lucky to be blessed with an amazing team who got together to salvage what we could. It was like a race against the clock as we didn’t know when the roof was going to give way.
Luckily we keep stock scattered in different locations in an event of a disaster - like the one that happened today. Tokyo is extremely sensitive to mother nature - all overground trains stopped service this morning.
We are all alive and kicking and our distributed inventory management means that we are able to continue shipping with only a few days delay. In the mean time I need to focus on dealing with damage to the new office but managed to do in my hernia in from the heavy lifting so I may be out of action for a few days.
