Inflation in Japan is at its peak in recent years


Inflation in Japan rose from 4% to 4.3%, the highest level in 41 years.

In Japan, the core consumer price index rose to 4.2% in January. This was the highest annual increase since September 1981. Core inflation, which covers energy but excludes fresh food prices, was announced in December at 4 percent. Thus, core inflation has exceeded the Bank of Japan’s target of 2 percent for 9 consecutive months since January.

On the other hand, headline inflation in January was 4.3 percent year on year.
