Tokyo stocks opened lower on Thursday as the Dow Jones Industrial Average losing ground overnight prompted investors to secure profits after the Nikkei's gains a day earlier.

The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, fell 8.46 points, or 0.52 percent, at 1,611.96.
Electric appliance, chemical and machinery-linked issues comprised those that declined the most in the opening minutes after the morning bell.
