Can I send money to family in other countries?
When sending money from Japan to family members in other countries, money is generally transferred from a bank or post office. However, the number of banks and post offices that accept overseas remittances is limited. You should check in advance which stores accept international remittances. Also, there may be restrictions on transferring money due to the situation in the destination country. For more details, please contact Support-R.
