Today we got our dual pilgrimage compostelas!
Camino kodo-Japan. We are safe! On Monday we took the bus back to the point we finished on Saturday. The typhoon was a baby typhoon and today the sun was shining as if nothing happened. The way is beautiful. A peaceful quiet forest. Only the rustling from the wind and the water in the river makes a noise. So utterly peaceful and restful. When I walk slowly I feel I walk in nature rythem. We meet no one. I feel happiness so closely and nothing can take it away. No wonder the people who do pilgrimage see deinties and gods in natures phenomena like trees, stones, waterfalls. They seem to have their own souls here. We walk until it starts to get dark and decide to take the bus to accommodation. There we enter the devils bath room. Hot springs and it smells devilish delishes like rotten egg. We cook eggs in the hot spring oven and enjoy once again a 100 dish dinner.

Well done! And I'm glad to hear you came through the storm safely. It sounds like a beautiful experience.

I agree the route is beautiful. Also I agree the typhoon was not what they predicted to be. The eye of the storm passed by close to where I was (Tokushima, Shikoku), but, as you said, there was little damage. and the next day weather was fantastic. We were lucky.
