TOKYO, June 4 (Xinhua) -- With five cases reported in Shizuoka, Tokyo and Chiba prefectures, Japan's tally of confirmed cases of A/H1N1 influenza reached 410 in Japan on Thursday, health authorities said.
In Tokyo, a 25-year-old male student who returned from the United States on Tuesday tested positive for the new flu, bringing to nine the total number of new flu patients in the capital.
In Shizuoka, local authorities confirmed that two men in their 20s have been infected with the new flu virus.

With the resumption of classes at Kobe Gakuin University High School Wednesday, all schools, which were closed due to A/H1N1 infections, reopened in western Japan's Kobe.
