[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks jumped on a weak yen Wednesday as Federal Reserve boss Janet Yellen signalled that US interest rates could rise at anytime, but Toshiba tumbled again on worries about its battered finances.

Tokyo's benchmark Nikkei 225 index rose 1.03 per cent, or 199.00 points, to 19,437.98, while the Topix index of all first-section issues was up 0.95 per cent, or 14.57 points, to end at 1,553.69.
