A man in his 60s on the remote island of Yakushima died on Saturday after strong gusts made him fall hard and hit his head, the Fire and Disaster Management Agency said.
A man in his 80s on neighbouring Tanegashima island drowned on Saturday after he went to check on his boat and was swept into the water, according to the agency and the Kagoshima prefecture government.
As of 3:00 pm yesterday, Noru was located just off the main southern island of Kyushu, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency.
Noru, with gusts up to 162 kilometres per hour, was slowly moving northeast and was on course to make landfall in southwest Japan, possibly at Shikoku island, by early Monday.
"Because the typhoon is moving very slowly, some areas are facing increased risk of landslides and other disasters," it said.
