TOKYO, June 27 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average
climbed more than 1 percent early on Thursday, bouncing after a
three-day losing streak, after U.S. stocks rose on reduced
concern that the Federal Reserve will scale back its stimulus in
the near future.
    The Nikkei was up 1.1 percent at 12,979.15 just
after the open, while the broader Topix gained 1.2
percent to 1,081.74.
