TOKYO, April 9 (Reuters) - Japanese government bond prices fell slightly on Tuesday, hurt by weaker U.S. Treasuries and a new supply of five-year debt.
The five- and 10-year JGB yields rose 0.5 basis points each to minus 0.165 percent and minus 0.045 percent , respectively.
The 30-year yield rose 1 basis point to 0.540 percent .
The finance ministry offered 1.9 trillion yen ($17.06 billion) of five-year JGBs on Tuesday.
The auction drew sufficient investor interest, with the bid-to-cover ratio, a gauge of demand, rising to 5.31 from 4.71 at the previous sale in March.
U.S. Treasuries slipped on Monday, pressured by upcoming government debt and corporate supply. ($1 = 111.3700 yen) (Reporting by the Tokyo markets team; Editing by Shreejay Sinha)
