Tokyo inflation data for September 2022

Headline Tokyo CPI 3.5% y/y,

  • expected 3.1%, prior was 2.8%

Tokyo CPI excluding Fresh Food 3.4% y/y,

  • expected 2.8%, prior was 2.8%
  • 3.4% is the fastest since October 1989

Tokyo CPI excluding Food, Energy 2.2% y/y,

  • expected 2.1%, prior was 1.7% (this measure of Japanese inflation is closest to the US ‘core’ CPI)
