[TOKYO] Tokyo shares opened higher on Friday after a gain in US stocks and a weaker yen, though the market remained cautious over next week's British vote on whether to leave the European Union.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange rose 1.28 per cent, or 197.65 points, to 15,631.79 shortly after the opening bell, while the broader Topix index of all first-section shares gained 1.22 per cent, or 15.16 points, to 1,256.72.
