TOKYO, March 9 (Xinhua) -- Tokyo stocks opened marginally higher Tuesday as export-related issues gained favor following the yen's retreat against the U.S. dollar, although the market's upside was capped as sentiment was dented by the tech-heavy U.S. Nasdaq composite index dropping overnight.

As of 9:15 a.m., the 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average added 38.25 points, or 0.13 percent, from Monday to 28,781.50.

The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, rose 10.15 points, or 0.54 percent, at 1,903.73.

Real estate, rubber product and transportation equipment issues comprised those that gained the most in the opening minutes after the morning bell.
