Tokyo shares close 2.03% higher

Tokyo stocks jumped 2.03 percent Tuesday as weaker yen helped lift the market after the eurozone told Cyprus to revise its controversial proposal to tax bank depositors as part of a larger bailout deal.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index added 247.60 points to 12,468.23, while the broader Topix index of all first-section shares was up 1.71 percent, or 17.55 points, at 1,045.89.
