USDJPY and the US 2 YEAR YIELD CORRELATION 'CRACK'

OANDA:USDJPY   U.S. Dollar / Japanese Yen
Since the YC inversion in August last year (2019), there has been a "crack" in correlation between the US02Y and USDJPY .
I expected the YEN to strengthen as the Japanese short the dollar against the YEN to hedge against the rising US Govt bond prices (due to the rate cuts) considering Japan holds a significant amount of US Govt debt.
My initial thoughts on this is that the BOJ is focused on keeping the YEN weak to stimulate its export sector which accounts for a significant amount of its trade.

At the expense of its debt ballooning ?????

I'll be looking into this during the weekend.
