Tokyo stocks closed marginally higher Monday as investor sentiment was lifted by the yen's retreat against the U.S. dollar, but gains were capped ahead of a historic summit between the United States and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average gained 109.54 points, or 0.48 percent, from Friday to close the day at 22,804.04.

The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, added 5.4 points, or 0.30 percent, to finish at 1,786.84.

Oil and coal product, fishery, agriculture and forestry, and retail-linked issues comprised those that gained the most by the close of play.
