However, overall gains were limited as the market prepared for US-Japan trade talks in Washington on Thursday. Tokyo is looking for ways to counter US pressure for a bilateral free trade agreement (FTA) and avoid increasing tariffs on its auto exports.
The Nikkei was up 0.4 percent at 22,754.28 in mid-morning trading, hovering at a one-week high.

Tech outpaced its shares, with TDK Corp up 3.9 percent, Hitachi Ltd up 1.7 percent, and Sumco Corp adding 2.3 percent.
NTT Corp jumped 3.1 percent after Telecom announced it would set up a global holding company focused on IT business overseas in the hope of boosting its competitiveness on board.
