Kishida's handling of inflation spurned by majority: poll

Japanese prime minister's approval rises to 64% as pandemic restrictions averted

Russia's invasion of Ukraine and a weak yen have driven up prices in Japan. 

TOKYO -- The Japanese public has grown increasingly frustrated with high prices at the pump and the supermarket, with 51% of those surveyed disapproving of the government's efforts to tame inflation, the latest Nikkei opinion poll shows.

The figure far outnumbers the 36% who gave high marks to the government's measures, according to the poll, conducted jointly with TV Tokyo from Friday through Sunday.
