[TOKY] Japan's Nikkei share average rose on Wednesday to a one-week closing high helped by exporters after the dollar gained against the yen, while financials outperformed thanks to a rise in US Treasury yields.

The Nikkei ended 0.7 per cent higher at 19,742.98, the highest closing level since May 17.

The broader Topix index added 0.6 per cent to 1,575.11, while the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 advanced 0.6 per cent to 14,050.51.
