Sakurai, a former academic who is seen as representing the BOJ's mainstream views, also said the central bank must be mindful of the risk that prolonged easing may hurt financial institutions' profits and disrupt Japan's banking system.

BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda has stressed the central bank was in no rush to reduce its stimulus with inflation still distant from its 2% target.
