Nikkei closes on a high
(05-22 14:36)

Stocks in Tokyo climbed 1.60 percent to close at their highest level in more than five years with investor appetite unabated on a weak yen and record-setting levels on Wall Street. The benchmark Nikkei 225 index gained 246.24 points to 15,627.26, the best finish since late December 2007, while the Topix index of all first-section issues was up 0.44 percent, or 5.64 points, at 1,276.03.--AFP
