The yield on the benchmark 10-year Japanese government bond fell Friday morning on buying stirred by expectations the Bank of Japan's ultra-easy monetary policy involving large monthly bond purchases will continue.

The yield on the No. 349, 0.1 percent issue, the main barometer of long-term interest rates, ended morning interdealer trading at 0.045 percent, down 0.005 percentage point from Thursday's close.

The price of the December futures contract for 10-year bonds rose 0.07 point to 151.00 on the Osaka Exchange.
