Tokyo stocks jumped 2.73 percent on Monday, boosted by a weakening yen as investors scooped up shares following weeks of wild volatility on Japan's premier exchange.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index ended up 346.60 points to 13,033.12, while the Topix index of all first-section shares climbed 2.68 percent, or 28.27 points, to 1,084.72.
