Tokyo Stock Exchange workers monitor screens during afternoon session in Tokyo, Friday, May 31, 2013. Japan's share prices gained 70 percent in the past six months before several big one-day declines, on hopes for a recovery and expectations that the weaker yen will improve the exports and overseas earnings of Japanese companies.
