[May 27, 2014]  TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average rose on Tuesday, extending gains into a fourth day as recent upbeat Chinese and U.S. data continued to lift investors' risk appetites.

The Nikkei ended 0.2 percent higher at a fresh seven-week high of 14,636.52.

The broader Topix was flat at 1,195.11, while the new JPX-Nikkei Index 400 added 0.1 percent to 10,903.57.
