After rising 4.37 percent in the last three days, the Nikkei share average .N225 ended 1.3 percent lower at 20,163.80.

The Nikkei has rebounded from a low of 18,948.58 hit on Dec. 26, its lowest since April 2017, but its upside remains limited, analysts said.

“The market condition hasn’t changed fundamentally since then and investors are still on edge amid global concerns,” said Hiroyuki Ueno, senior strategist at Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Asset Management.
