The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond ended Tuesday morning slightly lower in the wake of the Bank of Japan's announcement about its bond-buying operation.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended morning interdealer trading at 0.555 percent, down 0.005 percentage point from Monday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds was up 0.05 point to 145.70 on the Osaka Exchange.
