TOKYO STOCKS finished higher as foreign investors continued to pour money into blue chips such as Sony and Fujitsu following the steep decline in prices over the past two sessions.

The Nikkei 225 average rose 470.57 points or 3 per cent to 15,986.04 after a 500 plus point fall on Wednesday.

The rise came amid a drop in activity at domestic brokerages as this was the last day to trade stocks for delivery during the current fiscal year.
