Japan's government has said the economy expanded at a 6% annualised rate in the July-September quarter as the country staged a recovery from the devastating earthquake and tsunami in March.
The real gross domestic product reading marks the first expansion for the world's third-largest economy in four quarters.
The Japanese cabinet office said that the result translates to GDP growth of 1.5% from the previous quarter.
