USDJPY News by Newsroom on 20:21 July 05, 2018 EST

The average of monthly spending in Japan was down 1.4 percent on year in May, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications said on Friday.

That's a bit better than the expectations for a fall of 1.5 percent following a 1.3 percent decline in April.

The average monthly income per household was up 3.4 percent on year to 439,089 yen.
