Tokyo stocks have closed 1.9 per cent lower on as political concerns in Spain and Italy bring the eurozone's long-running debt crisis back on the radar.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index lost 213.43 points to 11,046.92 at the close on Tuesday. The Topix index of all first-section shares was down 1.68 per cent, or 16.05 points, at 939.70.
