Japan Stocks up on weaker yen

However, market gain was limited, with investors looking to a key meeting of the world’s top central bankers later in the day. Oil and coal product, information and communication, and pulp and paper-related issues comprised those that gained the most by the close of play. The benchmark Nikkei 225 average rose 98.84 points, or 0.51%, to close at 19,452.61. The Topix of all first-section issues ended up 4.79 points, or 0.30%, at 1,596.99.
