TOKYO, May 20 (Xinhua) -- Tokyo stocks advanced Wednesday morning, as the yen's softer tone versus the U.S. dollar gave exporters a boost, with Japan's solid machinery orders for March helping to buoy the mood.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average gained 151.19 points, or 0.74 percent, from Tuesday to 20,584.64.

The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, added 5.84 points, or 0.39 percent, at 1,491.89.
