TABLE-Foreign investors bought Japan stocks last week

TOKYO, April 5 (Reuters) - Foreign investors swung back to
net buying of Japanese stocks last week, purchasing a net 132.1
billion yen, capital flows data from Japan's Ministry of Finance
showed on Thursday.	
    Foreigners had been net sellers of Japanese stocks the
previous week after 12 weeks of net buying.	
    Foreign investors also sold a record net 3.477 trillion yen
in money market instruments last week, the most since the
ministry started compiling the data in 2005.	
    A ministry official said the high number was due to
technical factors as investors sold instruments that matured
last week.	
    	
    Details of net investments were as follows (in billion yen).
