Nikkei rises to 7-month closing high on China, weak yen

TOKYO, Dec 5 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average hit a
seven-month closing high on Wednesday, buoyed by sharp gains in
Chinese equities after comments by Communist Party chief raised
hopes of economic recovery in the world's second-largest
economy.
    The Nikkei ended 0.4 percent higher at 9,468.84
points in a choppy session, after trading in a range of 9,376.97
to 9,515.86.
    The broader Topix index was flat at 781.86.
