Benchmark Tokyo rubber future prices ended the session lower, driven by mixed trading in Shanghai rubber futures markets.

"The small movements in Shanghai markets have reduced the interest of the investors," said Kaname Gokon, an analyst at Okato Shoji in Tokyo.

Investors will "wait-and-watch over the next few days before taking fresh positions," he added.
