Japan Post will begin offering an improved international express mail service next month featuring enhanced user-friendliness and lower stamp costs, the public corporation said Friday.

EMS Asia and EMS World will start Feb. 2 in Tokyo’s 23 wards, Nagoya, Osaka and Kyoto on a trial basis. If the new service proves popular, it may be expanded nationwide, Japan Post said.
