Nikkei edges down ahead of U.S. data; Honda dives to 1-week low
TOKYO, Nov 26 (Reuters) - Japanese stocks edged down on Wednesday as investors cautiously awaited a slew of U.S. economic data and a holiday-shortened U.S. trading week dampened risk appetite, while Honda Motor Co fell sharply after under-reporting accidents. The Nikkei benchmark ended 0.1 percent lower at 17,383.58. U.S. durable goods and initial jobless claims figures are among data due later in the day. Honda tumbled 2.9 percent to a one-week low after admitting it had failed to report serious accidents in the United States since 2003. The broader Topix fell 0.2 percent to 1,406.40, while the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 shed 0.3 percent to 12,816.64. (Reporting by Ayai Tomisawa; Editing by Jacqueline Wong)
