Japan's benchmark stock index has plummeted after a spike in government bond yields and unexpectedly weak Chinese manufacturing spooked investors.
The Nikkei 225 in Tokyo nosedived 7.3 percent to close Thursday at 14,483.98 after a session of volatile trading.
Markets elsewhere in Asia sank after a survey showed China's manufacturing contracted in May.
Japan's 10-year government bond yield rose above 1 percent for the first time in a year, unnerving some investors at a time when Japan's already overburdened government finances are vulnerable to rises in interest rates.
