TOKYO, July 30 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average rose
for a fourth day in choppy trade on Wednesday, as strong

    The Nikkei ended 0.2 percent higher to 15,646.23,
the highest closing price since Jan. 23.
    The broader Topix gained 0.1 percent to 1,292.24,
and the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 also advanced 0.1
percent, to 11,770.70.
