[TOKYO] Tokyo's main indexes ended lower Friday, erasing all of their gains since the start of the year, weighed by doubts about US President Donald Trump's policies and concerns about the far-right march in Europe.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index lost 0.81 per cent, or 153.96 points, to end the day at 18,909.26, while the Topix index of all first-section issues lost 0.98 per cent, or 14.99 points, at 1,512.60.
