(CBS) - It looks like the perfect day for soccer: nice weather and blue skies. But then suddenly a tornado forms in the middle of the soccer field, forcing the children and their coaches to run for cover.

This video is a shocking reminder of how quickly weather can turn from fair to life-threatening and back again. Fortunately no one was injured.

Watch the video below.

Japanese news station SBC originally reported the story. The cyclone that struck the soccer game is more accurately considered a dust devil rather than a tornado, but try telling that to the kids hugging the ground as their tents are lifted into the air.
