Tokyo, Japan, May 20 – Tokyo stocks closed at a fresh 15-year high Wednesday on a weaker yen and solid Japanese growth data, but auto parts giant Takata tumbled after a recall of US cars with potentially deadly airbags was widened.

The Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange climbed 0.85 percent, or 170.18 points, to 20,196.56, its best finish since April 2000, while the Topix index of all first-section shares gained 0.62 percent, or 10.07 points, to 1,643.40.
