A witness told Japanese broadcaster NHK: "There is a nearby elementary school bus stop and elementary schoolchildren are down and school bags are also scattered.

"A man was down on the bus stop of the city bus about 20m away from the elementary school bus stop with blood. Usually, it is a peaceful place and it is scary it happened."

Witnesses say the attacker stabbed himself in the neck after the rampage. He's since been detained by authorities.

More to come.
