Nikkei rises after U.S. cliff averted, exporters high

TOKYO, Jan 4 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average rose
to a 22-month high on its first trading day of 2013 as a deal in
Washington to avert the "fiscal cliff" buoyed sentiment and a
weaker yen lifted exporters.
    The Nikkei added 2.0 percent to 10,605.94, the
highest intraday level since March 2011. The broader Topix
 gained 2.0 percent to 877.06.
