"After a 10-12 percent rise, there is bound to be some consolidation, and a shakeout could possibly see dollar drop to 84 yen," said Howard Jones, partner at money manager RMG Wealth Management in London.
"But any consolidation will be short-lived. From a macro view, with a huge change of policy taking place in Japan and the government determined to drive the yen lower, one must not underestimate them. We are looking at the dollar hitting 100 yen during the course of this year."
The Japanese economy is expected to recover a little in 2013 if Abe's policies of massive fiscal spending, aggressive monetary easing and a weaker yen produce the momentum needed to lift Japan from stubborn deflation.

On Wednesday, Abe repeated his call to the BOJ to take sufficient steps to achieve a 2 percent inflation target, while Finance Minister Taro Aso called for aggressive measures to beat deflation.
The euro last traded up 0.7 percent at 114.58 yen but was still below an 18-month high set on Jan. 2.

The euro, however, fell for a second straight session against the dollar and last traded 0.1 percent lower at $1.3064 ahead of a European Central Bank meeting Thursday. While strategists suggest the ECB will keep its interest rates on hold on Thursday, some investors and economists believe rates will be cut later this year.
Comments from European Central Bank President Mario Draghi after the central bank's interest rate announcement will have the potential to sway currency sentiment.
In the options market, short-term risk reversals, a broad gauge of currency market sentiment, show demand for protection against a drop in the euro has risen over the past month.
Indeed, three-month euro/dollar risk reversals remain biased toward puts, or the right to sell euros, trading at 0.73 percent Wednesday versus 0.65 percent a week earlier and 0.5 percent at the beginning of last month.
Also on the radar this week are the first bond auctions of the year from Spain and Italy on Thursday and Friday.
The risks of disappointment have increased and if this is confirmed, headwinds for the euro could intensify, according to Valentin Marinov, G10 strategist at CitiFX, a division of Citigroup, in London.
"Decent auction results could help the euro consolidate in the very near term," he said. "That said, we suspect that this could be only temporary."
That is because further sustained improvement in periphery sentiment could come after a bailout request from Spain and more clarity on the political outlook in Italy, he said.
