TOKYO, July 1 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average rose
to a one-week high on Tuesday as upbeat China factory reports
offset some weak spots in the Bank of Japan tankan survey.
    The Nikkei ended up 1.1 percent at 15,326.20, the
highest closing level since June 24.
    The broader Topix also rose 1.1 percent, to
1,276.08, as did the new JPX-Nikkei Index 400, which
ended at 11,596.53.
