HONG KONG - Asian markets mostly rose on Tuesday, with Tokyo gaining more than 1% as the yen sank against the dollar, while Shanghai was boosted by hopes China will introduce economy-boosting measures. 

With Wall Street closed for the Labor Day weekend investors were given an anaemic lead from Europe, where traders were eyeing the standoff between Russia and the West over Ukraine.

Tokyo rallied 1.24%, or 192.00 points, to 15,668.60 and Sydney rose 0.51%, or 28.67 points, to close at a six-year high of 5,658.5.
