[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks opened lower on Thursday following a mixed close on Wall Street as investors sidestepped active trading on a shortage of fresh clues.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index was down 0.42 per cent or 123.50 points at 29,607.29 in early trade, while the broader Topix index slipped 0.45 per cent or 8.81 points to 1,958.62.
