Tokyo stocks closed sharply lower on Thursday, with the benchmark Nikkei stock index tumbling almost 4 percent, tracking overnight plunges on bourses in Europe and the United States on concerns about a recent rise in long-term U.S. Treasury yields.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average plummeted 915.18 points, or 3.89 percent, from Wednesday to close the day at 22,590.86.

The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, meanwhile, tumbled 62.00 points, or 3.52 percent, to finish at 1,701.86.

All industry categories on the main section closed in negative territory, with oil and coal product and mining and machinery-linked issues comprising those that declined the most by the close of play.
