TOKYO, March 8 (Xinhua) -- Tokyo stocks advanced Monday morning as the passage of a hefty U.S. stimulus bill and upbeat U.S. jobs data for February late last week raised hopes for the recovery of the world's largest economy and a broader global economic recovery.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average added 61.71 points, or 0.21 percent, from Friday to 28,926.03.

The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, rose 8.68 points, or 0.46 percent, at 1,904.86.
