TOKYO, Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- Japan's July consumer prices were up 3.3 percent from a year earlier, gaining for the 14th straight month, said the Japanese Internal Affairs Ministry Friday.

The core consumer price index, which excludes volatile fresh food prices, stood at 103.5 against the 2010 base of 100, said the ministry.

The sales tax hike carried out in April has pushed the inflation rate up by about 2 percentage points, according to Japan ' s central bank that aims at lifting the rate to 2 percent in or around fiscal 2015, without the effect of the tax hike.
