Tokyo Disney Resort welcomed visitors on Wednesday for the first time in four months after being closed due to the coronavirus, with fans practicing social distance as they returned to see Mickey Mouse and other beloved characters. Visitors in face masks queuing on floor marks clapped as the gates of the Magic Kingdom reopened, and were encouraged to clean hands, pay without cash and avoid screaming while enjoying one of Japan's largest theme parks. The resort will operate at a 50% capacity for the foreseeable future, while parades and shows remain suspended.
Japanese stocks bounced back to end firmer on Tuesday after a brief market volatility following confusing statements from the White House on the U.S.-China trade deal. Earlier in the session, the Tokyo market had slipped into the red after White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said that the trade deal with China is "over" in an interview with Fox News.
Navarro's comment caused a surge in risk sentiment, but concerns were quickly toned down as Navarro later clarified that his comment was taken out of context. The broader market Topix gained 0.78% to 1,591.45, with all but three of 33 sector sub-indexes on the Tokyo trading higher.
The Japanese theme park operator owned by U.S. cable and media company Comcast Corp said it would reopen on June 8 to residents of Osaka Prefecture, and to residents of nearby regions from June 19. Universal Studios Japan's (USJ) reopening comes after the Asian nation lifted its state of emergency on Osaka Prefecture and surrounding regions on May 21 following a sustained fall in the number of coronavirus infections in the area.
Japanese stocks advanced in line with their Wall Street and Asian peers and hit a two-and-a-half-month high on Tuesday, as encouraging early-stage data for a potential coronavirus vaccine boosted hopes for a swift reopening of the global economy. Data from Moderna Inc's COVID-19 vaccine, the first to be tested in the United States, showed it produced protective antibodies in a small group of healthy volunteers, the company said on Monday. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan last traded up 1.6% in late Asian trade.
Japanese stocks scaled a near eight-week closing high on Thursday, tracking Wall Street's overnight rally on promising early trial results of an experimental COVID-19 treatment, as well as on solid tech earnings and a surge in oil prices. The Nikkei's heavyweight SoftBank Group Corp added 0.5% after the tech conglomerate predicted a loss of around 700 billion yen for the year to March 2021 on the portion of its WeWork investment held outside the Vision Fund, extending the group's expected net loss to 900 billion yen.
Japan's Topix share index fell to its lowest level in more than three years on Wednesday as investors worried about the global economic impact of the fast spreading coronavirus. The broader Topix shed 1.5% to 1,385.12 points, its lowest close since November 2018, reversing course after rising as much as 1.1% in the morning. The index slid 20.7% from its recent high of 1,747.20, marked in December, putting it in bear market territory.
Japanese shares ended lower on Friday as mounting coronavirus cases in China and other Asian countries eclipsed the boost from a weaker yen, with many investors closing their positions ahead of a long weekend. On the week, the Nikkei was down 1.27% and the Topix fell 1.70%.
Japanese shares were little changed on Friday as mounting coronavirus cases in China and other Asian countries offset the boost from a weaker yen ahead of a long weekend. The outbreak has already disrupted economic growth in China and a further spread to other countries could derail a "highly fragile" projected recovery in the global economy in 2020, the International Monetary Fund warned on Wednesday. The epidemic that originated in China appears to be quickly spreading to surrounding countries such as Japan and South Korea, even though recent tallies from China have raised hopes of some stabilisation there.
Japanese stocks slid to a 1-1/2-week low on Monday, hurt by a worse-than-expected economic contraction in the December quarter, while worries about the business impact of the coronavirus epidemic continued to weigh on the market. All but two of the 33 sector sub-indexes on the Tokyo Stock Exchange were trading lower, with air transport, foods and metal products being the worst three performers. Economists' median estimate was for a 3.7% contraction.
Japanese shares slipped on Tuesday, with the Nikkei hitting a three-week closing low, as the new coronavirus spread in China and beyond, prompting authorities to take more drastic measures to contain its outbreak. The Topix, which includes all listed shares on the Tokyo Stock Exchange's main board, slipped 0.6% to a two-month closing low of 1,692.28. All but two of the 33 Topix industry subindexes closed in the red.
Japan's Nikkei share average posted its biggest one-day loss in in five months on Monday, with tourism-related stocks under pressure amid fears that a virus outbreak in China could be more deadly and harder to contain than initially thought. China extended its Lunar New Year holiday and more big businesses shut down and told staff to work from home in a bid to contain the spread of the disease as the death toll rose to 81.
Japanese shares tumbled on Monday, with tourism-related stocks taking a fresh hit, on fears that a virus outbreak originating from China could be more deadly and harder to contain than initially thought. China's cabinet said it would extend the week-long Lunar New Year holiday by three days to Feb. 2 in a bid to contain the spread of the disease as the death toll rose to 80. "While we can't tell how much the disease will spread, one thing we can say for sure now is that consumption in China is already taking a hit as Beijing tries to contain the epidemic," said Hiroyuki Ueno, senior strategist at Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Asset Management.
