Rising prices in Japan worries about 70 percent of citizens. The relevant data was provided by the local newspaper The Asahi Shimbun.

According to the material of the publication, the majority of the inhabitants of the Land of the Rising Sun are dissatisfied with the government’s anti-crisis measures. 71 percent of the Japanese criticize the authorities, and only 29 percent did not feel the appreciation of goods and services in everyday life.

At the same time, 19 percent of respondents believe that official Tokyo is doing everything possible to resolve the situation.

It also became known about the fall in the rating of Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida compared to last month. At the moment, the activities of the head of the Cabinet are approved by 40 percent of citizens, which is one percent less than the previous result.

Recall that since the beginning of the year electricity tariffs in Japan have increased by 30 percent. The reason was the increase in the cost of natural liquefied gas and coal, which are not produced in the country.
