HONG KONG - Asian shares were mostly lower on profit-taking Thursday following a healthy rally across the region the previous day, while Wall Street provided another tepid lead despite an upbeat assessment of the US economy. 

The dollar edged back towards 105 yen after losing steam on Wednesday, with the Bank of Japan's decision to stand pat on monetary policy seeming to have little effect.

Tokyo retreated 0.33%, or 52.17 points, to 15,676.18 and Sydney fell 0.44%, or 24.8 points, to close at 5,631.3 while Hong Kong was marginally lower, dipping 20.03 points to 25,297.92
