TOKYO, Jan 8 (Reuters) - The dollar dipped against the yen on Friday after Japanese Finance Minister Naoto Kan said markets should decide exchange rates. [ID:nTKF106789]

The dollar struck the day's low of 93.13 yen, falling from around 93.30 yen before Kan's remarks. The dollar then climbed back to 93.32 yen, little changed from late U.S. trade, after Kan said it was a finance minister's job to respond to currency moves.

Earlier in the day, the dollar rose as high as 93.78 on trading platform EBS, its highest since late August, on growing expectations for an upbeat U.S. jobs report. (Reporting by Rika Otsuka)
