Nikkei hits 1-week high on hopes for progress in Washington

TOKYO, Oct 10 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average
gained 1.1 percent and hit a one-week high on Thursday, buoyed
by hopes that U.S. politicians will resolve the fiscal standoff
soon, lifting such exporters as Toyota Motor Corp and
Honda Motor Co.
    The Nikkei closed up at 14,194.71 after touching
14,200.31, its highest since Oct. 3.
    The Topix gained 1 percent to 1,177.95.
