Japan Dec retail sales rise 0.4 pct year/year

TOKYO, Jan 30 (Reuters) - Japanese retail sales rose 0.4
percent in December from a year earlier, slower than a 1.2
percent year-on-year rise in November, government data showed on
Wednesday, in a sign that consumer spending may be losing some
momentum.
    The climb was more than the median estimate for a 0.3
percent annual increase, according to a Reuters poll.
    Compared to the previous month, retail sales rose 0.1
percent.
