TOKYO, June 25 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average fell
to a one-week low on Wednesday as investors took profits from
recent rallies, while the government's widely-anticipated growth
strategy met a muted market reaction.
    Taking its cue from Wall Street's losses overnight, the
Nikkei dropped 0.7 percent to 15,266.61, the lowest
closing level since June 18.
    The broader Topix fell 0.6 percent to 1,260.83 while
the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 declined 0.6 percent to
11,472.04.
