BEIJING — The Japanese Embassy in Beijing issued a warning Monday to Japanese nationals in China about possible "strong reactions" from the Chinese public following Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi's visit to the war-linked Yasukuni Shrine.

The warning was issued through email to registered Japanese nationals. "Chinese authorities have consistently showed a severe attitude toward the prime minister's visits to Yasukuni Shrine, and today's visit could also prompt strong reactions from the Chinese government as well as the public," the message said. Japanese nationals should pay attention to news reports as well as messages issued on the Japanese Embassy website, and stay away from crowded areas, the embassy said.
