Strong yen to hit Japanese company profits

A number of big Japanese companies are about to report their first quarter earnings. They include Sony, Nintendo, Sharp and Panasonic.

The firms are expected to show a gradual recovery from the devastating earthquake in March.

But, as the BBC's Roland Buerk reports from Tokyo, there are many other challenges. These firms export their products overseas - which means the strong yen is a headache.
