(Headquarters: Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director: Mauricio Araujo de Souza) and will issue an original chargeable Visa prepaid card “MAURICIO STUDIO CARD” from the end of November.
Mainly aimed at Brazilians living in Japan, the cards feature characters from the masterpiece “Monica And Friends” by Mauricio de Souza, a manga artist who represents Brazil. As one of the solutions to problems such as opening a bank account and issuing credit cards, which are often cited as problems for foreigners who come to Japan for work or immigration, we will provide a new cashless payment option through Kyash.
Realization through “MAURICIO STUDIO CARD”
Through the newly issued chargeable Visa prepaid card “MAURICIO STUDIO CARD”, we will eliminate the “inconvenience” and “dissatisfaction” of money and increase various “possible”.
● You can easily issue a Visa prepaid card that can be used online or at physical stores from the app.
● You can charge money using a convenience store or Seven Bank ATM without opening a bank account.
● After confirming your identity, you can receive rewards through the corporate remittance service provided by Kyash.
Kyash will continue to support the creation of a more comfortable working environment and easier living for foreigners living in Japan through these efforts, and we would like to work on the innovation of Japan’s money culture.
