Tokyo stocks have closed 1.41 per cent higher as a weak yen helped boost the market.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index gained 140.06 points to 10,080.12, while the broader Topix index of all first-section shares was up 0.64 per cent, or 5.29 points, at 838.01 at the close on Tuesday.
The market surged last week following a return to power for the country's conservatives.
