TOKYO, March 25 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average rose more than 2 percent on Tuesday as Canon Inc and other exporters climbed with the yen trading off a near 13-year high hit last week against the dollar, easing some concern about exporters' earnings outlooks. The benchmark Nikkei was up 2.1 percent at 12,740.56 as of 0431 GMT. The Nikkei ended flat on Monday, snapping a three-day winning streak. The broader TOPIX index added 1.6 percent to 1,243.26 on Tuesday. (Reporting by Aiko Hayashi)
