Taipei, Sept. 28 (CNA) The Foreign Ministry warned Sunday against travel to areas around the volcano in central Japan that erupted a day earlier, leaving at least 30 mountain climbers injured and about as many missing.

The warning came after Japan issued an advisory restricting access to Mount Ontake at the border of Nagano and Gifu prefectures and placing areas within a four kilometer radius under warning.

Taiwan's ministry recommended avoiding travel to the mountain until Japan lifts the ban.

The 3,067-meter mountain could erupt again, Japanese media quoted the Japan Meteorological Agency as saying, but the agency played down the possibility of an eruption on a bigger scale.
