It means, tyfoons usually move toward (in the direction of) Japan.
Typhoon paths follow three general directions.
Straight track (or straight runner). A general westward path affects the Philippines, southern China, Taiwan, and Vietnam.
A parabolic, recurving track. Storms recurving affect eastern Philippines, eastern China, Taiwan, Korea, and Japan.
Northward track. From point of origin, the storm follows a northerly direction, only affecting small islands.
According to this page (http://www8.ocn.ne.jp/~yohsuke/taihuu_2.htm), there are 27 typhoons every year on average. 11 of them come close to Japan and only 3 actually hit Japan.
Thanks, I didn't know that. Is it required tag "false"?
