The Bank of Japan's Akita branch announced on the 22nd the summary of the financial and economic situation in the prefecture for May. Regarding the local economy, it stated that it has been "recovering" for eight consecutive months. Individual items were upwardly revised for employment and income, while the remaining five items remained unchanged from the previous month's assessment.

(Personal Consumption) While there are some signs of decrease in large-scale retail store sales, convenience store sales, and drugstore customer visits, there has been an increase due to price increases. Home center sales and household appliance sales have remained stable. Although there are some indications of sluggish orders in automobile sales, the impact of supply constraints has eased, resulting in a recovery in terms of registrations. In the service consumption sector, there has been a recovery due to increased tourism demand during the Golden Week holidays and improved consumer sentiment following the transition to the "Phase 5" of the novel coronavirus.
