TOKYO : Japan's consumer confidence rose in October, the government said on Friday, following the easing of some pandemic-related restrictions.

A Cabinet Office survey showed the sentiment index for general households, which includes views on incomes and jobs, was at 39.2 in October, compared with 37.8 in September.

The government upgraded its assessment of the sentiment index, saying there were continued signs of improvement.
