The overall consumer price index for the Ku-area of Tokyo in Japan, which includes fresh food prices, rose 2.4% to 101.8 points in May 2022 from a year earlier, slowing from a 2.5% gain in the previous month. The latest figure highlighted the nation’s weaker price momentum compared with global peers and offered some support for the Bank of Japan’s stimulus stance. Analysts previously noted that inflation in Japan may not keep accelerating further as the pace of the energy price inflation is slowing. The BOJ recently raised its forecast for this year's inflation rate but kept its ultra-loose monetary policy unchanged, stressing its resolve to maintain massive stimulus until inflationary pressures were accompanied by wage rises and stronger demand. source: Statistics Bureau of Japan
