TOKYO -- McDonald's Japan said Friday that it will raise prices on some 80% of its menu items on Jan. 16, in a sign of spreading inflation in the once deflation-plagued economy.

The price hikes will range from 10 yen to 150 yen. The move follows a price increase of some 60% of the products on the menu in September.
