Japanese shares edged higher on Wednesday, tracking gains on Wall Street, although profit-taking and lingering trade concerns limited the market's gains.
The Nikkei was up 0.27 percent at 22,875.12, headed for its seventh straight session of gains. The broader Topix gained 0.46 percent to 1,739.52.
The index had poked above 23,000 on Tuesday, reaching its highest since June 12 in intraday trading, before losing some traction.
