Suga said that the meeting will be a good opportunity to strengthen bilateral relations on pressing issues like North Korea.
The minister did not give details of the topics to be discussed, although Tokyo has been closely following the process of North Korea's denuclearization, an initiative of the US administration led by President Donald Trump.
Japan has also sought international support for demanding a resolution of the kidnapping of at least 17 Japanese citizens by North Korean agents between 1977-1983.
The aim of the meeting, scheduled to be held in New York, was to prepare for a second summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, for which the date and venue are yet to be decided.
Suga refused to comment on the results of the US mid-term elections and said the US-Japan alliance remained firm.
In a press conference on Wednesday, Trump alleged that Japan did not treat the US "fairly" in their trade relations.
"They send in millions of cars at a very low tax. They don't take our cars," he said.
