Japan, welcome to TransferWise

Wise

###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.'
