Japan's government warned its citizens to take precautions when visiting China, after reports of harassment in response to Tokyo's discharge of treated wastewater from the Fukushima nuclear plant into the ocean.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said citizens visiting or living in China should avoid speaking Japanese in a loud voice, and pay close attention to their surroundings if going to the embassy or consulates. In a statement on its website, the ministry urged people to stay away from any demonstrations against the Fukushima water release and avoid taking pictures of such events.

The ministry also advised those traveling to China to leave an itinerary and contact numbers with their friends, family and employers at home.
