TOKYO, Feb 5 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average fell
on Tuesday, snapping a five-day winning streak as renewed

recent gains, with the benchmark pulling away from a 33-month
high hit the previous day.
    The Nikkei dropped 1.9 percent to 11,046.92, moving
away from a 33-month closing high of 11,260.35 hit on Monday.
    The broader Topix fell 1.7 percent to 939.70.
