Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

In this view there's a huge blue area visible only in the Transport layer, but it should be forest. (If this lake actually existed, it would be the 2nd largest in Japan; it's certainly not there).

The area had been a line, so in an attempt to fix it (turn it into forest) I added "area:yes" and "landuse:forest", but that doesn't seem to fix it.

Short of just deleting the whole (big, complex) node, can it be turned into a normal forested area like those next to it?

Hi, that way was one part of the forest multipolygon but had somehow been removed,(breaking the multipolygon). I've added it back to the multipolygon, give it a little while to re-render and see if that fixes it.

Link to show rendering is correct :- See here https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/2672534599#map=16/34.7898/136.0273&layers=N

Thank you for giving it a try, but it's always looked fine on the normal layer. Only on the "Transport Map" layer does it look like a lake.

The transport map is not updated that often. You might have to wait a couple of days before it gets updated.

The areas that you've linked to are now fixed, but further down at https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/34.7769/136.0358&layers=T there's still a problem. Presumably it's just a "renderer catching up" issue. If the data's correct, I wouldn't worry about it.

Thanks much, everyone... the flood has receded and the earth is dry again. :-)
