Tokyo stocks rose 0.83 percent Tuesday, on the back of a Wall Street rally driven by upbeat US factory output data ahead of a key Federal Reserve policy meeting.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index added 125.72 points to 15,278.63, while the Topix index of all first-section shares was 0.77 percent, or 9.36 points, higher at 1,232.31.
US industrial output jumped 1.1 percent in November, the Federal Reserve reported, while manufacturing activity saw a fourth consecutive monthly gain.
That helped push the Dow Jones Industrial Average up 0.82 percent to close at 15,884.57.
