I'd got a taxi from Beppu train station to the port, having arrived without enough time to work out which bus to take. When I asked for the port, the driver chuckled and said "Typhoon!". Typhoon Hato had caused some downpours in Taiwan a week earlier and now there was another one out to the east that was forecast to be heading in towards Japan. But the night was calm, and I slept well. I got up early to see the sunrise.
