TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average surged above 9,700 for the first time since early April, with exporters buoyed by a yen that falls as expectations rise that the Bank of Japan will implement more aggressive monetary easing.

The Nikkei .N225 rose 1.7 percent to 9,742.73, the highest closing level since April 5. The broader Topix .TOPX index was up 1.0 percent at 799.21.
