KONTAN.CO.ID - TOKYO. Japan's central bank chief Haruhiko Kuroda apologised on Tuesday for a remark a day earlier that households were becoming more accepting of price rises after drawing political heat on the issue, underscoring public sensitivity to rising living costs.

The comment came at a sensitive time for the government of Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, which faces growing calls to tackle rising costs of food and fuel ahead of an upper house election next month.
