[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks opened higher Monday, extending last week's gains as a weaker yen lifted exporters with sentiment buoyed by hopes for US President-elect Donald Trump's new administration.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index opened up 0.53 per cent, or 92.7 points, at 17,467.49. The broader Topix index of all-first section issues rose 0.63 per cent, or 8.68 points, to 1,386.96.
