[ Story ]

Tamura had been dubbed the Typhoon Reporter, for the topic is never far from his lips.
And every time he sees the mammoth neon signs, blinking on and off everywhere under the night sky, each seems like a weapon, always poised to fall on people passing below.
Tamura attends the party of a certain chemical company. That day the company's mammoth new neon sign will light up the sky for the first time. Mr. Maruyama, the contractor, is the father of Teruko, a girl Tamura has known since college days.
That night, the sign bursts into flames and goes out. A police check proves that it has been blown up by dynamite.
Earlier in the day on her way home from the party, Teruko had run into Kitani, who had gone to the same college with Tamura and herself.
Kitani says he has come from Nagoya and is in charge of a small firm which Tamura realizes is the company that Endo, a ruthless former career Army officer, had wrested from the former president by force.
During the war, Endo had been the staff officer to Kitani's father, who brought back his father's ashes at the war's end, and had sent Kitani to college.
There is a one-year guarantee on the neon sign, so Teruko's father mortgages his office and home. However, someone kills him and steals the money.
Teruko decides to finish her father's work, and Endo, who finds Tamura too noisy for comfort, orders Kitani to hush him up or get rid of him.
A powerful typhoon with winds of 135-mph blows up while Teruko and the men keep working, and Kitani and Tamura have their showdown. The next morning turns out and bright and peaceful but the cluttered streets are evidence of the relentless power of a giant typhoon.
