TOKYO (Reuters) - The dollar rose to its highest level against the yen since Jan. 19 on Friday, as investors awaited U.S. job data that is likely to reinforce expectations of a Federal Reserve interest rate hike next week.

The dollar rose as high as 115.43 yen, and was last up 0.4 percent at 115.39.
