People walk outside a securities' firm in Tokyo, Monday, June 13, 2011. Japan's Nikkei 225 dropped 0.7 percent to close at 9,448.21 after the government reported that core machinery orders fell unexpectedly in April by 3.3 percent from the previous month. The drop came as companies canceled orders following a devastating March 11 earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan that destroyed or damaged scores of factories. (AP Photo/Junji Kurokawa) less
