The market is soaring in Japan in the first trading day since the central bank eased monetary policy.
The Nikkei 225 was up 4.16% to 17,096.50.
The Bank of Japan announced on Friday further easing of monetary policy due to concerns that a decline in oil prices would weigh on consumer prices and delay a shift in sentiment away from deflation.
The local market jumped 5% in reaction.
The market was closed for a holiday on Monday and today is the first full trading day since the easing announcement.
