Tokyo stocks rose slightly Monday morning, with gains in U.S. technology shares late last week spurring buying of their Japanese counterparts amid slow trading.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average rose 122.34 points, or 0.37 percent, from Friday to 33,291.39. The broader Topix index was up 4.54 points, or 0.19 percent, at 2,340.97.

On the top-tier Prime Market, gainers were led by rubber product, pharmaceutical and precision instrument issues.
