Attaullah Khogyani, a spokesman for the governor of Nangarhar province, told Anadolu Agency the incident took place in the provincial capital Jalalabad city, as Tetsu Nakamura and his five colleagues were on their way to the office in a vehicle.
The Taliban has rejected their involvements in killing the Japanese physician and aid-worker.
In late November, an American working for the United Nations mission in Afghanistan was killed and five Afghans, including two staff members of the mission, were wounded when a grenade hit a United Nations vehicle in Kabul.
"I was shocked that he had to die this way", Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters on Wednesday, adding that the Afghan people had thanked Nakamura, head of Peace Japan Medical Services, for his contributions, according to Reuters.
Nakamura was seriously wounded and was reported to be in critical condition immediately after the attack in the provincial capital.
"We have no idea what was the reason behind the attack, whether it was a simple robbery or whether it was conflict of interest", Fukumoto said.
Nakamura was famous in Japan for his aid work, which dates back decades.
Peshawar-kai was founded by associates of Nakamura, who had lived and worked in Afghanistan and Pakistan since 1984.
On November 24, Anil Raj, an American who worked for the UN Development Programme in Afghanistan, died when his vehicle was targeted.
Nakamura had also heavily been involved in the construction of wells and irrigation in villages where many suffered from cholera and other diseases due to a lack of clean water.

Photos from the scene showed a white pickup truck with a large cabin.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, the second in as many weeks targeting aid workers in Afghanistan.
Armed anti-government groups, including the Taliban and the Islamic State, operate in the province.
Authorities recently claimed the jihadists have been territorially defeated in the province - but small cells are thought to remain.
He also said, "There is no way" that the aid group will abandon the irrigation improvement project in Afghanistan to which Nakamura had long devoted himself to fight malnutrition, a problem he found to be the root cause of illness in the region.
The Taliban in May struck Counterpart International, a US-funded non-profit group working with marginalised people.
The Taliban control or hold sway over almost half of Afghanistan, staging near-daily attacks that target Afghan forces and government officials but also kill scores of civilians.
