TOKYO: Tokyo stocks opened 0.18 per cent higher Wednesday after record-setting gains on Wall Street and relief over a Greek debt deal.

The Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange, which on Tuesday closed at a fresh 15-year high in a five-day winning streak, added 32.86 points to 18,636.34 at the start.

The Dow and S&P 500 Tuesday bolted to fresh records after Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen pledged a cautious approach to raising interest rates.
