TOKYO, July 21 (Reuters) - Japan's core consumer prices were unchanged in June from a year earlier, government data showed on Tuesday.

The core consumer price index, which includes oil products but excludes fresh food prices, compared with economists' median estimate for a 0.1% annual fall.

Stripping away the effect of fresh food and energy, consumer prices rose 0.4% in June from a year ago.
