Wed Jan 9, 2013 6:12am GMT

TOKYO, Jan 9 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average rose on
Wednesday, as a halt in the yen's gains prompted investors to
buy shares of exporters such as Toyota Motor Corp and
Honda Motor Co who would gain from a more competitive
currency.
    The Nikkei gained 0.7 percent to 10,578.57 while the
broader Topix added 0.8 percent to 879.05.
