TOKYO, Jan 22 (Reuters) - Japanese shares edged up on
Thursday as the yen sagged versus the dollar after surging the
previous day, although caution ahead of the closely-watched
European Central Bank policy meeting firmly later in the day
capped gains.
    Upcoming domestic corporate earnings announcements also
added to the wait-and-see mood.
    The Nikkei ended 0.3 percent higher at 17,329.02.
The broader Topix slipped 0.1 percent to 1,389.43 and
the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 shed 0.1 percent to
12,631.01.
