after being in negative territory earlier.
    The broader Topix added 0.3 percent at 1,557.77 and
the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 advanced 0.3 percent to
    Oil shares fell, with Inpex Corp dropping 2.5
percent and JX Holdings 2.8 percent after oil prices
declined, adding to steep losses the previous session.
