TOKYO, Jan. 12 (Xinhua) -- Tokyo stocks closed marginally higher Tuesday, as advances made by pharmaceutical issues linked to COVID-19 treatments were somewhat offset by pandemic concerns as the state of emergency here is expected to be expanded to include three western prefectures.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average edged up 25.31 points, or 0.09 percent, from Friday to close the day at 28,164.34, marking its fresh highest closing level since Aug. 8, 1990.

The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, added 3.00 points, or 0.16 percent, higher at 1,857.94.

Electric power and gas, oil and coal product and air transportation-oriented issues comprised those that gained the most by the close of play.

Markets here were closed on Monday for a national holiday. Enditem
