    I will be traveling to JAPAN, and would like to take the Yen with me. Do these transfer businesses send the yen to a private home?

      Hi Fred,

      Thanks for reaching out to Finder.

      The money transfer companies listed on this page will only allow you to send money online internationally, direct to your receiver’s bank account or for cash pick-up.

      If you are looking into buying foreign currency, you can buy through your local bank or specialist currency exchange providers.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Charisse
