[TOKYO] Japan's Nikkei share average fell for the third straight session on Thursday, as an undercurrent of Brexit fears kept risk asset markets nervous.

The Nikkei lost 0.7 per cent to 15,276.24, hurt by renewed strength in the yen as Brexit fears have resurfaced.

The broader Topix dropped 0.7 per cent to 1,226.09 with 1.83 billion shares changing hands, down from Wednesday's 2.2 billion.

The JPX-Nikkei Index 400 fell 0.75 per cent to 11,045.54.

The index for the Mothers start-up market declined 3 per cent to 980.27.
