Tokyo's benchmark Nikkei stock index soared more than 7 per cent on Tuesday, boosted by a weak yen and aggressive asset-buying from the Bank of Japan.

The Nikkei 225 index rose 7.13 per cent, or 1,204.57 points, to close at 18,092.35, while the broader Topix index was up 3.18 per cent, or 41.09 points, at 1,333.10.

Tokyo shares opened sharply higher as investors were encouraged by a weak yen against the US dollar and the Bank of Japan's (BOJ) buying of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), dealers said.
