Asian markets were mixed in cautious trading on Tuesday as investors awaited the release of delayed US September jobs data later in the day.
The dollar edged up against the yen, returning to its upward trend after this month's Washington standoff over the debt ceiling and budget had sent investors running to the Japanese unit.
Tokyo rose 0.13 percent, or 19.68 points, to 14,713.25 thanks to the weakening yen, while Sydney climbed 0.40 percent, or 21.3 points, to 5,373.1. Seoul added 0.15 percent, or 3.11 points, to end at 2,056.12.
