Japanese destroyer, Chinese fishing boat collide in East China Sea
The article said that the incidence occurred about 650 km (~400 miles) west of Yakushima.

Yakushima is an island at the southern tip of Japan, and about the same latitude as Shanghai. From Google Map, with eyeballing, Yakushima and Shanghai are approximately 500 miles apart. So the incidence occurred about 100 miles off the Chinese coast, and well within China's exclusive economic zone. Of course, the article would not bother to mention this.

Just wondering what was the Japanese destroyer doing there that triggered the collision.

Yep, the Japanese destroyer was 5x closer to Chinese mainland than to Japanese mainland.
