The Bank of Japan injected 3.5 trillion yen ($43 billion) into markets on Wednesday. That came after injections totaling 23 trillion yen ($283 billion) over the past two days.
The action is aimed at supporting financial markets that plunged after Friday's magnitude-9.0 earthquake and tsunami that caused crippling problems at nuclear power plants.
