[TOKYO] Tokyo shares opened lower Tuesday as the yen surged overnight, weighing on exporters, while investors await a British referendum on whether to leave the European Union.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange fell 0.53 per cent, or 85.28 points, to 15,880.02 shortly after the opening bell, while the broader Topix index of all first-section shares fell 0.80 per cent, or 10.29 points, to 1,268.90.
