The dollar eased slightly against the yen on Wednesday, but remained close to 2-1/2-week highs reached this week as the prospects for more economic stimulus in Japan helped bolster risk sentiment.
The dollar was off 0.2 percent to 104.46 yen. On Tuesday, the greenback touched 104.98 yen, its highest level since June 24. For the week, the dollar is up about 3.8 percent against the yen.
The euro fell 0.3 percent against the yen to 115.46 yen but was still up about 3.9 percent so far this week. Against the dollar, the euro held steady at $1.1057.
A rebound in equity markets has led investors to reduce their holdings of safe-haven assets like the yen, which had surged in the aftermath of Britain's shock vote last month to leave the European Union.
