Asian markets were mostly lower Wednesday, with focus on the US Federal Reserve's policy meeting later in the trading day, but Tokyo enjoyed another rally as data showed a surge in exports thanks to a weaker yen.
Wall Street again provided a healthy cue, with investors betting the Fed will stop short of reeling in its "quantitative easing" (QE) bond-buying programme.
Tokyo added 1.83 percent, or 237.94 points, to 13,245.22 and Sydney was 0.98 percent higher, climbing 47.0 points to 4,861.4. Seoul lost 0.65 percent, or 12.31 points, to 1,888.31.
