Nikkei edges higher, exporters gain as yen flat

TOKYO, Sept 15 (Reuters) - Japan’s Nikkei stock average edged up 0.5 percent on Tuesday, with Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T) and other exporters rising as the yen’s advance against the dollar came to a halt. Incoming Japanese leader Yukio Hatoyama has picked veteran lawmaker Hirohisa Fujii as finance minister, the Nikkei business daily reported. But analysts said the news was unlikely to affect the stock market as it was not surprising.

The benchmark Nikkei .N225 gained 53.49 points to 10,255.55, while the broader Topix .TOPX rose 0.4 percent to 937.30. (Reporting by Elaine Lies)
