Nippon Yusen rose 11 percent, the biggest gain since October 2008, to close at 295 yen as of the 3 p.m. end of trading in Tokyo. Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Ltd. and Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha Ltd., Japan’s second- and third-biggest shipping lines, increased 7.6 percent and 6 percent respectively. All three companies are based in Tokyo.
