Japan’s foreign-exchange reserves rose $4.80 billion in January to a record high $851.67 billion, helped in large part by a stronger euro, the Finance Ministry said Tuesday.

The increase in the nation’s reserves, which include convertible foreign currencies, gold and International Monetary Fund special drawing rights, follows a $3.63 billion rise in December and a $1.48 billion increase in November.
