The euro firmed against major currencies in Asian trade Friday thanks to an upbeat German business confidence survey and improving investor sentiment about Greece.
The common currency was trading at $1.3374 and 107.12 yen in Tokyo trade, compared with $1.3369 and 106.94 late Thursday in New York.
The greenback stood at 80.11 yen in Friday trade, compared with 79.98.
Noriaki Murao, a senior dealer at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ in New York, said Thursday's better-than-expected German business survey had lifted the single currency.
"It's true we're still a bit concerned about Greece's problems but in general, it's likely that Athens can avoid a disorderly default," Murao told Dow Jones Newswires.
The Ifo index - a key barometer of corporate confidence in Germany - hit its highest level in seven months in February due to strong domestic demand, which has largely shielded Europe's biggest economy from the eurozone crisis.
