TOKYO, Jan. 11 (Xinhua) -- Tokyo stocks closed higher Friday as Wall Street's gains overnight set a solid tone with the yen's retreat against the U.S. dollar also buoying the market mood and giving exporters a boost.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average gained 195.90 points, or 0.97 percent, from Thursday to close the day at 20,359.70.

The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, added 7.72 points, or 0.51 percent, to finish at 1,529.73.

Precision instrument, real estate, and electric power and gas-linked issues comprised those that advanced the most by the close of play. Enditem
