Japan's Consumer Prices Index Slows to 2.2% YoY in January

27 February 2024

The annual inflation rate in Japan dropped to 2.2% in January 2024 from 2.6% in the prior month, pointing to the lowest figure since March 2022, as food prices rose the least in 16 months (5.7% vs 6.7% in December). The core inflation rate fell to a 22-month low of 2.0% from 2.3% in December, above market consensus of 1.8%, but within the Bank of Japan's 2% target after surpassing that level for 21 months. Monthly, consumer prices were flat after edging up 0.1% in December.
