Sending money to the UK

What's the best way to send money to the UK, preferably to a Lloyd's Bank account? And by best, one with good rates and less hassle. It could be online banking or cash remittance. Thanks!

    I used to use Japan Post to transfer money back home, but recently I changed to TransferWise, because they got a better exchange rate. For small amount (less than 150K yen) TransferWise cost around 1000 Yen transaction fee compare to Japan Post 2500 yen. Since Japan Post transaction fee is flat rated, for large amount it is better to use Japan Post. * Disclaimer: The following is my referral link (First transfer for free), feel free to google it with the keyword "TransferWise". https://transferwise.com/i/kevinc90

    I used to send money through the Post office via registered mail (to Ireland). They allow you send up to 2,000,000 million yen. Dirt cheap: you only have to pay for the registered mail or you can do insured mail if you prefer. I always thought that it was illegal to send money to / from Ireland, but thanks to the Japan Post I found out that Ireland will accept it if it is registered (but not insured mail). I believe the UK is similar.

    I must be living in the dark ages - I didn't know you could transfer through JP to international accounts for a good price (I'll have to check that out!) I mainly use PayPal when doing international transfers if it's to someone I know.

  • For me I personally use Paypal. If your bank is connected to your Paypal account you can send money to anyone for no fee or if you send money via credit card it's a small fee. This has worked for me. I just find out if that person also has a Paypal account.

Best onsen town near Tokyo with a lot of snow

Looking for recommendations for a nice onsen town / resort near Tokyo where I can see plenty of snow. Planning to go in February. It would be an overnight stay. Also, if the town has a bit of atmosphere and places to eat other than the hotel / ryokan, that would be even better. Cheers! Maybe around 3 hrs one-way (without flying) would be the maximum travel time in this case.
