TOKYO, Jan 30 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average ended
at a 33-month high on Wednesday, led by exporters and interest
rate-sensitive sectors, such as real estate, supported by the
continued expectation of a softer yen and further monetary
easing by the Bank of Japan.
    The Nikkei rose 2.3 percent to 11,113.95, while the
broader Topix gained 1.5 percent to 934.67.
