TOKYO -- Japan's Financial Services Agency decided Monday to conduct an on-site investigation of the Tokyo Stock Exchange in response to a system failure that shut down equities trading earlier this month, Nikkei has learned.

The TSE submitted an incident report on Friday as requested by the FSA. The financial watchdog will review in detail the cause of the system problems as well as the TSE's internal controls.
