Tokyo: Japanese share prices closed up 1.01% on Tuesday, 11 March, rallying from a 30-month low as bargain hunters emerged despite ongoing problems in global credit markets, dealers said.
The benchmark Nikkei-225 index rose 126.15 points to 12,658.28, a day after hitting its lowest closing level since September 2005.
The broader Topix index of all first-section shares rebounded 10.76 points or 0.88% to 1,235.15.
