    Japan's Nikkei stock average climbed 1.6 percent on Thursday to its highest level since last's month quake. Stocks were helped by better-than-expected domestic earnings and strength in U.S. shares.

    The benchmark Nikkei closed the day up 157 points.

    The broader Topix rose just under 12 points.

    The Nikkei also picked up momentum after breaking through its closely watched 200-day moving average of 9,814.

    Japanese markets are closed Friday and will reopen on Monday, ahead of more holidays next week.
