TOKYO, June 23 (Xinhua) -- Tokyo stocks closed higher Tuesday in choppy trade Tuesday, after inheriting a positive lead from U.S. tech issues rallying overnight helping lift their counterparts here.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average gained 111.78 points, or 0.50 percent, from Monday to close the day at 22,549.05.

The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, added 8.05 points, or 0.51 percent, to finish at 1,587.14.

Transportation equipment, warehousing and harbor transportation service, and rubber product-oriented issues comprised those that gained the most by the close of play.
