Tokyo’s benchmark Nikkei index closed up slightly more than 2 percent on Friday after Japan’s prime minister said he will not run for his ruling party’s leadership, effectively ending his tenure.

The Nikkei 225 jumped 2.05 percent, or 584.60 points, to end at 29,128.11, while the broader Topix index gained 1.61 percent, or 31.88 points, to 2,015.45.
