So what can the academic Kazuo Ueda do to fix the world's third largest economy?
If approved by the country's parliament as the next governor of the Bank of Japan (BOJ), Mr Ueda has to deal with both slow economic growth and the highest inflation since 1981.
On Tuesday, official figures for the last three months of 2022 showed Japan's economy expanded by 0.6%, much lower than forecasts of 2% growth.
Meanwhile, data for December showed core consumer prices rose by 4% from a year earlier, twice the rate targeted by the central bank.
Experts warn that the next governor of the BOJ will struggle to raise interest rates to curb inflation without harming fragile economic growth.
