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%.

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

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

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