[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks rose 0.46 per cent Wednesday, boosted by a weak yen and upbeat Japanese earnings reports, but market heavyweight Fast Retailing tumbled owing to weak July sales at its Uniqlo clothing chain in Japan.

The Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange added 93.70 points to finish at 20,614.06, while the Topix index of all first-section shares rose 0.36 per cent, or 6.02 points, to 1,665.85.
