The Japan share market closed higher after recouping early losses on Tuesday, 13 March 2018, registering fourth straight session of winning streak, thanks to a halt of the yen's strengthening against the dollar.
However, market topside capped amid lingering concerns about the market impact of a cronyism scandal dogging Japan's premier. The benchmark Nikkei 225 index gained 0.66% or 144.07 points to close at 21,968.10 while the broader Topix index was up 0.56% or 9.73 points, at 1,751.03.
