Typhoon Hagibis has hit Japanese farms, forests and fisheries very hard.


Government officials say the damage tops 70 billion yen, or 650 million dollars, as of Monday afternoon.

Damage to agricultural facilities runs to about 255 million dollars.

The figure for the forestry industry is roughly 156 million dollars.

About 69 million dollars' worth of rice, fruit and other crops was lost due to the typhoon.

The total bill is expected to rise, as not all the relevant data has been collected.
