[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks rose 0.76 per cent to close at a fresh 15-year high Wednesday although gains were curbed by the yen's upturn on the Bank of Japan's decision to hold off fresh stimulus.

The Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange added 149.27 points to 19,789.81, its best finish since April 2000, while the Topix index of all first-section issued was up 0.63 per cent, or 9.92 points, at 1,588.47.
