Japan's economy contracted in the 3 months to December by 0.4% quarter on quarter, adding to a string of setbacks for the government's economic reform policy.

Expectations for the preliminary numbers were for a quarterly contraction of 0.3%.

Weaker domestic demand together with slower investment in housing contributed to the poor numbers.
