[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks climbed 1.25 per cent on Tuesday, boosted by a weaker yen and gains on Wall Street as last week's soft US jobs data tempered expectations for a US interest rate hike.

The Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange climbed 242.56 points to 19,640.54 while the Topix index of all first-section issues rose 1.14 per cent, or 17.84 points, to 1,578.55.
