TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese stocks edged down from one-year highs on Thursday as investors took profits from recent gainers such as financials in otherwise thinning trade ahead of the holiday season.

The Nikkei share average dropped 0.1 percent to 19,427.67. The broader Topix fell 0.1 percent to 1,543.82.
