Japan to lift emergency state for Osaka, Kyoto, Hyogo - econ min

TOKYO, May 21 (Reuters) - Japan will lift its state of emergency in Osaka, Kyoto and Hyogo on Thursday as the number of new coronavirus infections drops, Economy Minister Yasutoshi Nishimura said on Thursday, with the country eager to revive its battered economy.

Tokyo and four other prefectures, including the northern island of Hokkaido, would remain under the state of emergency - which has already been lifted for much of the country. (Reporting by Hitoshi Ishida Editing by Chang-Ran Kim)
