[TOKYO] Tokyo's benchmark Nikkei index jumped more than 1.3 per cent to a fresh eight-month high on a weak yen on Friday, as concerns over US trade pressure on Japan retreated.

The Nikkei 225 index rose 1.36 per cent or 323.30 points to close at 24,120.04, approaching a 27-year high.

The Topix index was up 0.95 percent or 17.14 points at 1,817.25.
