12 September 2016  |  2158 views  |  0 Source: TransferWise

We’re excited to announce that you can now send money to and from Japan with TransferWise.

At our first official press conference in Tokyo, TransferWise CEO Taavet said:

'We're excited to launch in Japan. Transferring money in and out of Japan is slow and expensive. We're changing that. With TransferWise transferring money is faster, cheaper and easier.

We have a local team on the ground in Tokyo - we believe it's very important to be close to our customers.'

Here's what you need to know and transfers to Japanese Yen:

Our transfers are fast, fair and low cost - sending money to Japan costs 0.5%, and sending money from Japan costs 1%.

You always get the real exchange rate for your money. Click here to read more about making your first transfer to Japan.

You can make JPY transfers straight from TransferWise.com, and they're coming soon to our iOS and Android apps.

TransferWise now speaks Japanese. You can update your language settings in your profile.

When you next want to send money to Japan, remember there's a smart new way to do it. With no hidden charges.

Japan, it's great to have you with us.
