The unemployment rate in Japan came in at a seasonally adjusted 4.3 percent in June, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications said on Tuesday.
That beat forecasts for 4.4 percent, which would have been unchanged from the previous month's reading.
The job-to-applicant ratio was 0.82, in line with expectations and up from 0.81 in May.
The participation rate was 59.4 percent, down from 59.5 percent a month earlier.
