The Japanese government has warned its citizens that they may have less than 10 minutes to prepare for a missile fired from North Korea.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's office issued new "actions to protect yourself" guidelines this week, The Washington Post reported Tuesday, including instructions for the first time on how to respond to a ballistic missile from Pyongyang.

Three of the four missiles North Korea launched on March 6 landed within Tokyo's exclusive economic zone in the Sea of Japan, the Post reports.

The body of water separates Japan and the Korean Peninsula.

Pyongyang said later that it was practicing to hit U.S. military bases in Japan.

"When a missile is launched from North Korea, it will not take long to reach Japan," one response in to a "frequently asked question" reads, according to the Post. "For example, the ballistic missile launched from [North Korea] on February 7 last year took 10 minutes to fly over Okinawa."

The general tenor of Japanese government's warning is: You won’t get the warning in time, but if you do, go to a strong building, the Post reports.
