The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond finished at a 15-month low Tuesday on buying partly triggered by the Bank of Japan's bond-buying operation.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main barometer of long-term interest rates, ended interdealer trading at 0.550 percent, down 0.010 percentage point from Monday's close.

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