ARIDA, Japan - A Japanese television crew captured a rare tornado hovering over a city along the country's coast on Wednesday.

The tornado was filmed from a helicopter and remained out at sea for about ten minutes before it dissipated and disappeared.

Tornados, though infrequent in Japan, are not unheard of.

Japan's meteorological agency has issued warnings of similar tornados across the country following freak hail storms and weather patterns, especially on the coast bordering the sea of Japan.
