TOKYO, April 5 (Reuters) - Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Friday he saw no immediate risk of bubbles forming in stock and bond markets a day after the BOJ's plan to expand the monetary base pushed Japanese stocks to the highest in nearly five years and sent bond yields to record lows.

The BOJ launched a radical overhaul of monetary policy on Thursday by agreeing to inject about $1.4 trillion into the economy in less than two years in a radical gamble to end 15 years of deflation.
