TAKE A LOOK-Asia inflation: Japan core CPI rises, S.Korea inflation slows

Japan's core consumer prices rose for the first time in over a year in January
due to a pickup in energy costs and private consumption, offering some hope for
the central bank's efforts in accelerating inflation to its 2 percent target.
   South Korea's inflation slowed slightly in February from the previous month
as price pressures stayed largely muted, data showed on Friday, giving the
central bank some space to cut rates if needed amid growing economic risks.
