TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan Post Bank is slowly returning to the U.S. bond market after yields rose considerably following the U.S. election, although the bank sees yields rising further later this year, its chief investment officer said.

The bank also expects the dollar to strengthen against the yen, possibly towards 120 yen by the end of the year, from around 114 yen now, Katsunori Sago, the bank's CIO told Reuters in an interview.
