Asian markets were mixed on Tuesday, the first day's trading for some markets after the Easter break, even though Wall Street provided another strong lead.
The dollar eased slightly against the yen after rallying on Monday in response to Japan's announcement of another massive trade deficit.
Tokyo gave up early gains as the yen reversed course against the dollar, with the Nikkei ending 0.85 percent lower, giving up 123.61 points to finish at 14,388.77. Hong Kong ended down 0.13 percent, or 29.56 points, at 22,730.68.
