[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks opened slightly lower on Wednesday with investors cautious ahead of key US jobs data later in the week and as an upward revision in Japanese growth data failed to spur buying.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index slipped 0.14 per cent, or 26.88 points, to 19,317.27 in the first few minutes of trading. The Topix index of all first-section issues was down 0.11 per cent, or 1.78 points, at 1,553.26.
