TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso said on Monday he would expect the Bank of Japan to support financial market stability and corporate finance.

He said it was up to the BOJ to come up with monetary policy steps and declined to comment on policy measures including whether the central bank needed to ease further.
