Japanese stocks declined after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell's assessment of the U.S. economy renewed speculation of faster interest rate increases, and as the yen strengthened after the Bank of Japan cut its purchases of bonds.

Topix weakened 0.2% to 1,786.47 as of midday break in Tokyo while Nikkei 225 fell 0.4% at 22,309.05. Yen added 0.1% to 107.26 per dollar after dropping 0.4% Tuesday.

Banks and automakers were the biggest drags on the Topix index, which declined for the first time in four sessions. The yen gained against the dollar after the BOJ reduced buying of bonds due in over 25 years by 10 billion yen in Wednesday™s market operation. U.S. stocks fell and 10-year Treasury yields climbed back to 2.9 percent after Powell™s comments were seen raising thepossibility that the Fed may raise rates four times in 2018.
