Japan share market finished session higher on Monday, 16 April 2018, supported by buybacks of domestic demand-oriented issues on relief that the fallout from US-led strikes on Syria over the weekend appeared limited. The yen's weakness against greenback and other major currencies also boosted investor sentiment.
However, market gains were limited as many market participants shifting their focus to a two-day summit between the United States and Japan from Tuesday. The benchmark Nikkei 225 index ended up 56.79 points, or 0.26%, at 21,835.53. The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange climbed 6.86 points, or 0.40%, to close at 1,736.22.
