The yield on the benchmark 10-year Japanese government bond ended Wednesday morning unchanged as traders refrained from buying following recent rises in government bond prices.

The yield on the No. 333, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended morning interdealer trading at 0.605 percent, unchanged from Friday's close. Japanese financial markets were closed Monday and Tuesday for public holidays.

The price of the June futures contract for 10-year bonds rose 0.04 point to 145.13 on the Osaka Exchange.
