Japan is one of the countries which are prone to typhoons.

Are the words in bold correct to mean typhoons strike Japan occasionally? Thanks.

It suggests to me more often than occasionally.

Thanks, 5jj.

I believe typhoons strike Japan occasionally, rather than often. How should it be worded to mean typhoons are occasional occurrences in Japan?
