The yield on the bellwether 10-year Japanese government bond ended lower Friday on buying triggered by a decline in Tokyo stocks in the afternoon.

The yield on the No. 334, 0.6 percent issue, the main yardstick of long-term interest rates, ended interdealer trading at 0.505 percent, down 0.020 percentage point from Thursday's close.

The price of the September futures contract for 10-year bonds increased 0.21 point to 146.07 on the Osaka Exchange.
