(Updates with opening) TOKYO, May 28 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei stock average rose 0.3 percent on Wednesday, buoyed by high-tech exporters such as Canon Inc on a softer yen and after a sharp drop in oil prices improved investor confidence about consumer and business spending on Wall Street. As of 0001 GMT, the benchmark Nikkei average added 43.83 points to 13,937.14, rising for a second day. The broader Topix index was up 0.2 percent or 3.16 points at 1,371.41.
