The Japan share market finished session higher on late bargain-hunting in quiet pre-holiday trade on Friday 22 December 2017, as gains in mining and marine transportation issues were more than offset by losses in pharmaceutical and construction issues. The benchmark Nikkei 225 index gained 0.16 percent, or 36.66 points, to close at 22,902.76.
Over the week, the Nikkei 225 index jumped 1.55 percent. The broader Topix index was up 0.35 percent Friday, or 6.47 points, at 1,829.08, with a weekly gain of 1.99 percent.
