[TOKYO] Japan's Nikkei rose for a fourth straight day on Thursday after the yen weakened, but gains were capped by dismal earnings from companies such as Toyota Motor Corp.

The Nikkei share average gained 0.4 per cent to 16,646.34 points, the highest closing level since April 28.

The broader Topix added 0.2 per cent to 1,337.27 and the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 advanced 0.2 per cent to 12,087.30.
