The dollar slipped in Asia Thursday ahead of the release of US retail sales data seen as key to gauging the strength of the world's biggest economy.
In afternoon Tokyo trade, the greenback bought 102.06 yen, from 102.50 yen in New York Wednesday.
The euro fetched $1.3608 and 138.92 yen, against $1.3593 and 139.33 yen, after dovish comments from a European Central Bank (ECB) board member.
With few trading cues, attention turned to the January US sales data later Thursday after poor jobs figures cast doubt on the strength of the US recovery.
