The Japanese stock market is notably higher on Tuesday, recouping some of the losses in the previous session, with the Nikkei 225 falling below the 27,600 level, following the broadly positive cues from global markets overnight, driven by gains in technology and financial stocks.

Market heavyweight SoftBank Group is edging up 0.3 percent and Uniqlo operator Fast Retailing is gaining almost 1 percent. Among automakers, Honda is flat and Toyota is also edging up 0.5 percent.
