[TOKYO] Tokyo's benchmark Nikkei index rose for a fourth consecutive session Friday on a weak yen, but early gains were largely erased by profit-taking.

The Nikkei 225 index edged up 0.17 per cent, or 39.75 points, to close at 23,289.36, but the broader Topix index inched down 0.05 per cent, or 0.77 points, to 1,623.38.
