World Rugby has called a media conference to 4am BST in.
Super Typhoon Hagibis is due to sweep this weekend, also affecting the Pool C decider in International Stadium Yokohama on Saturday and also Scotland group showdown against Japan 24 hours afterwards.
The choices available to World Rugby are to cancel the all-Six Nations fixture or move it to Oita, where the quarter-finals are being staged.
With Hagibis due to have proceeded by the end of the weekend, even Scotland could see their clash with Japan postponed by 24 hours but played at the identical venue.
The storm, which on Wednesday was described by the Japanese Meteorological Agency asviolent, has become a Category 5 super typhoon with winds reaching 180mph.
It is many times the measurements of Typhoon Faxai, which killed three people, attracted Tokyo into a standstill for the afternoon of Englands coming to the World Cup, delaying their exit from Narita Airport by half an hour, and left only a million homes without electricity.
Satellite pictures of the weather event show that it is the size of Japan and shows no sign of decreasing in size or deviating out of its route.
Irelands Pool A game against Samoa on Saturday and Wales Pool D conflict with Uruguay on Sunday are on the side of Japan – at Fukuoka and Kumamoto, respectively – therefore probably out of the Primary path of the storm.
A Met Office spokesperson informed the PA news service:The overall story remains the same. Typhoon Hagibis in the North Pacific is on track towards Japan this weekend.
At Wednesday afternoon, it was located around 900 miles south west of Tokyo with estimated wind speeds of around 120mph and gusts of 170mph. Obviously as Hagibis goes towards Japan it will weaken and these wind speeds will collapse.
We are expecting that Hagibis will be likely to make landfall on Saturday, not too far from Tokyo. With gusts of up to 135mph and with wind strengths nevertheless of 90mph its going to have weakened but by that point. Along with the winds, were currently expecting very heavy rain across its route.
Of course with these very robust and severe winds, even using heavy rain, there is likelihood of significant impact from the damaging winds and from storm surge. With the winds and waves that are large, Theres the risk of flash flood as well
In the Tokyo region.
Even the Met Office spokesperson added:Even though the location and extent of effect are still fairly uncertain, theres an increasing likelihood Hagibis will influence southern Japan.
