BOJ Tankan follow-up out now - firms' inflation expectations down slightly

Japanese firms expect consumer prices to rise an annual 1.0% 3 years from now vs +1.0% in the previous survey - expect consumer prices to rise 0.8% a year from now vs +0.9% in the prior survey Only that one minor fall in expectations.
