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 about 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%.
