Nikkei falls 1 pct on exporters, Toyota slides

TOKYO, Jan 29 (Reuters) - Japan’s Nikkei average fell 1 percent on Friday, with exporters pressured by a stronger yen, while Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T) skidded further after the world’s top automaker said it would extend a recall of millions of vehicles.

The benchmark Nikkei .N225 slipped 106.24 points to 10,308.05. It rose 1.6 percent the previous day to end a four-day losing streak.

The broader Topix .TOPX declined 0.6 percent to 908.73.

Nintendo 7974.OS slipped more than 1 percent after the games maker posted a 41 percent fall in nine-month profit as sales of its DS handheld game player slowed and it cut the price of its Wii console. [ID:nTOE60P0BI] (Reporting by Aiko Hayashi)
