Asia's markets mostly rose on Wednesday as investors brushed off a weak batch of data from the United States, while the dollar edged up against the yen.
The euro also enjoyed support after European officials raised their growth forecasts, as the region slowly recovers from its debilitating debt crisis.
Tokyo dived more than one percent at the open on a stronger yen. But the market later picked up, in line with a greenback revival, and by the end of trade the Nikkei was 0.54 percent, or 80.63 points, lower at 14,970.97.
