The 10-year Japanese government bond yield tumbled 1 bp to minus 0.225 percent, declining further from its two-month peal of minus 0.145 percent.

The five-year yield dropped 0.5 bp to minus 0.375 percent, crawling towards a record low of minus 0.400 percent contacted a month ago.

Longer maturities were slightly changed with both the 20-year Japanese government bond yield and 30-year yield unchanged at 0.180 percent and 0.350 percent.
