At least four people have been killed and several are missing after a powerful typhoon bore down on the Japanese capital, bringing with it the heaviest rains in 60 years.

More than 62 people were injured and more than six million were advised to evacuate when Typhoon Hagibis, which means "speed" in the Philippine language Tagalog, made landfall on Japan's main island of Honshu shortly before 7:00pm (local time).

The typhoon, which has already burst some river banks, threatens to flood low-lying parts of Tokyo as it coincides with a high tide.

It is now moving up the eastern coast, with wind speeds of about 225 kilometres per hour.
