The Fiji Airways Flying Fijians were not affected by the typhoon that killed at least 18 in Japan.

They have left their base in Oita and have arrived in Tokyo.

Fijian rugby fans in Japan supporting the Flying Fijians are said to be out of the typhoon-hit areas and safe.

Fiji Rugby Union official Inoke Bainimarama said the Fijians would fly out of Tokyo today for Hong Kong, where they would catch a Fiji Airways flight to Nadi.

He said they would arrive at Nadi tomorrow morning.

It is not clear whether the Northern Hemisphere players will head directly to their clubs or if they would come to Fiji first.
