The latest jaw-boning came a day after the yen hit a fresh 20-year low against the dollar and a seven-year trough against the euro on expectations the Bank of Japan (BOJ) will continue to lag behind other major central banks in exiting stimulus policy.
Senior officials from the Ministry of Finance, BOJ and banking regulator Financial Services Agency would meet on Friday from 4 p.m. (0700GMT) to discuss global market developments, the finance ministry said.
The weak yen trend has boosted the prices of imported commodities and pushed up the cost of living for resource-deficient Japan.
"I won't comment on currency levels, including the question (of intervention) to avoid causing any impact from an offhand comment," Suzuki told reporters when asked about the possibility of intervention.
"What's most important is currency stability as rapid fluctuations are not desirable," Suzuki told a news conference, repeating the official line.
"We will continue to carefully watch currency market movements and their impact on Japan's economy with a sense of urgency."
The Japanese currency on Thursday weakened to a fresh 20-year low of 134.56 yen per dollar.
