Tokyo stocks opened lower on Thursday as the yen firmed against the dollar after the US Federal Reserve said it will keep rates low given the shaky economic outlook.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index was down 1.27 percent or 293.85 points at 22,831.10 in early trade, while the broader Topix index fell 0.96 percent or 15.65 points to 1,609.06.
