Yes, but not absurd because Yen is a RISK APPETITE currency like US$. If there is any conflict in any part of the world, a pandemic or a huge catastrophe, Yen and US$ rate will rise against RISK AVERSION currencies like GBP, CAD, EUR, etc. And if you ask why is YEN higher than US$ and vice-versa, the answer is they follow "Fundamental" like yield curves, unemployment, GDP's, etc. and "Technical" like charts and trends.
