The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond fell slightly Thursday morning on bond buying in the wake of falls in Tokyo stocks.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended morning interdealer trading at 0.595 percent, down 0.005 percentage point from Wednesday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds was up 0.10 point to 145.26 on the Osaka Exchange.
