TOKYO, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Japanese stocks fell on Wednesday
after surprisingly weak German factory data sparked renewed
concerns over global economic growth, bolstering the yen and
prompting investors to sell shares in exporters.
    The Nikkei share average closed down 1.2 percent at
15,595.98, a five-week closing low.
    Car manufacturers were a notable victim of the stronger yen.
 The Tokyo Stock Exchange's transport equipment makers subindex
 fell 2 percent, with Mazda Corp falling 3.8
    The broader Topix closed down 1.2 percent at
1,274.85, while the new JPX-Nikkei Index 400 fell
1.3 percent to 11,586.10.
