TOKYO, June 26 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei rose marginally on
Thursday, crawling back from a one-week low as weak U.S. gross
domestic product data supported by views that the U.S. Federal
Reserve will keep interest rates low for longer.
    Rakuten Inc soared on a report it is preparing to
enter the low-cost carrier business.
    The Nikkei ended up 0.3 percent to 15,308.49.
    The broader Topix added 0.2 percent to 1,263.43,
while the new JPX-Nikkei Index 400 gained 0.2
percent to 11,490.59.
