Tokyo stocks lost 0.80 percent Thursday morning following losses on Wall Street fuelled by Federal Reserve minutes showing divisions over its bong-buying scheme to boost the world's biggest economy.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index was down 92.00 points at 11,376.28 by the break while the Topix index of all first-section issues fell 0.60 percent, or 5.89 points, to 967.81.
