Tokyo stocks close 1.49% higher

Tokyo stocks closed 1.49 percent higher Wednesday, as the yen tumbled on speculation that Japan's new premier Shinzo Abe would keep up his pressure campaign for more central bank easing.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index gained 150.24 points to 10,230.36, while the broader Topix index of all first-section shares was up 1.16 percent, or 9.70 points, at 847.71.
