[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks rose Friday as a cheaper yen lifted exporters, while troubled Toshiba soared on renewed optimism it will be able to work through huge losses at its US nuclear unit.

Tokyo's benchmark Nikkei 225 index rose 0.93 per cent, or 177.22 points, to end the day at 19,262.53. The Topix index of all first-section issues advanced 0.88 per cent, or 13.51 points, to 1,543.92.
