Kuroda, 68, would replace current BOJ governor Masaaki Shirakawa, who will step down on March 19.
The government also nominated academic Kikuo Iwata and BOJ official Hiroshi Nakaso to serve as the central bank's two deputy governors, said Genichiro Sada, a lawmaker from the ruling Liberal Democratic Party.
In coming days, the three candidates will give testimony in parliament. Lawmakers in both the lower and upper houses will then vote on the nominations.
