Tokyo - Tokyo stocks closed 1.83% higher on Wednesday, ahead of the Federal Reserve ending its policy meeting and as official data showed Japan's exports soared in May, thanks to a weaker yen.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index jumped 237.94 points to 13 245.22, while the Topix index of all first-section shares rose 1.86%, or 20.17 points, to 1 106.57.
