Kenyans living in Japan have been advised to avoid all travel to north of Japan and Tokyo.

The embassy also advised them to relocate as far away as possible from the two cities hard hit by the earthquake last Friday.

As they do so, they should notify the embassy of their new locations including any options to travel outside Japan, said a statement from the missions website. Consequently the mission announced it had temporarily closed office from Friday until further notice.

" In view of the deepening crisis at the Fukushima nuclear power facility, the embassy wishes to advise all Kenyans resident in Japan to strictly observe the advises of the authorities as pertains to the above area including the set evacuation zone," read the statement in part.
