The dollar extended its gains against the yen in Asia Wednesday after upbeat manufacturing data from the United States and Europe boosted sentiment ahead of key US jobs figures this week.
In Tokyo midday trading, the greenback fetched 103.83 yen, from 103.66 yen in New York Tuesday.
"The 104 yen mark is well in sight within today, despite caution ahead of US jobs report due on Friday," a senior dealer at a Japanese bank told Dow Jones Newswires.
The euro rose to 143.30 yen from 142.98 yen, while also edged up to $1.3801 from $1.3793.
