TOKYO, July 9 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average rebounded on Tuesday to hit a 6-1/2-week closing high, with large-cap stocks leading the gains, as the dollar strengthened back above 101 yen and on gains in U.S. and European equities. The benchmark Nikkei rose 2.6 percent to 14,472.90, its highest closing since May 24, while the broader Topix gained 2.1 percent to 1,196.89, with 32 of its 33 sub-sectors in positive territory. The Nikkei has risen more than 39 percent this year, underpinned by the Japanese government's sweeping stimulus policies.
