TOKYO, May 20 (Xinhua) -- Tokyo stocks opened higher Wednesday, as the yen's retreat against the U.S. dollar gave exporter issues a boost, although a weak showing on Wall Street overnight saw gains capped.

As of 9:15 a.m., the 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average gained 80.51 points, or 0.39 percent, from Tuesday to 20,513.96.

The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, added 2.25 points, or 0.15 percent, at 1,488.30.

Construction, nonferrous metal and precision instrument-oriented issues comprised those that gained the most in the opening minutes after the morning bell. Enditem
