This morning, Yahoo! Surprised to see Finance page. Temashita is 88 yen to 100 yen last week was the Canadian dollar. US dollar and 100 yen, I'm off.
It was just before the yen's appreciation trend, Japan's credit card (I'm old and faded) and had to earn a little money in Canada and heavy, and indeed this is way down because of international remittances Canadian money changed to account for Japan's Shinsei Bank. Partially to reduce the risk much lower.
By the way, here in the world with Shinsei Bank cash out of interest I withdraw $ 500. About 89 yen after the rate and amount drawn look at online banking, 47 500 yen (about 95-yen exchange rate) could not. That is worth a damn. When I travel abroad and more favorable credit card rates.
Well, you asked most efficient way to transfer abroad the Japanese people. The best way as far as I know, Central Tanshi (※) in foreign exchange deposit account open there, a company that want money to buy it "as is" foreign currency and transfer to Citibank accounts and from there transferred to overseas bank accounts. (There are many places can not remain outside the money exchange currency dealers and others that ※)
Central Tanshi is to transfer a large amount of foreign exchange fee is so cheap compared to the far bank foreign exchange companies are so money at all. (However, other than to trade forex dealers actually do so is a slight increase.)
Appreciation of the yen continues like this, or I guess not and 70 yen. Na not buy my house quickly want to transfer all the savings in here Then Japan (to buy a house in downtown Vancouver called Do you wonder now.)
It seems around the world become more and more distant, and I said that. What did I blog this blog want to hear?
