The dollar held steady Monday following a surge last week on comments from Federal Reserve head Janet Yellen as Tokyo shares rebounded from a six-week low.
In afternoon trading, the greenback fetched 102.43 yen, rising from 102.23 yen in New York Friday.
The euro was mixed, buying $1.3800 and 141.37 yen, compared with $1.3794 and 141.87 yen.
Tokyo's Nikkei 225 stock index, which finished up 1.77 percent, was lifted by the yen's weakening against the dollar, boosting exporters.
