The share market finished session lower on Wednesday, 10 January 2018, dragged down by profit booking after hitting a 26-year-high on Tuesday. But a halt in the yen's rise against the U. S. dollar served to trim losses over the day.

Among 33 TSE sectors, and precision instrument issues led stocks that declined, while and real estate-linked issues comprised notable gainers. The 225-issue Stock Average dropped 61.79 points, or 0.26%, to 23,788.20. The broader index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, finished 2.82 points, or 0.15%, higher at 1,892.11.
