Health and Safety

Hygiene standards are high in Japan, and medical facilities (although expensive without insurance) are widely available. Japanese people have the highest life expectancy of any country in the world and the medical facilities, treatment and medicines are in very high quality. Probably the most important preventative measure is to make sure that you are healthy before you start travelling. Dental treatment is also expensive, so it's a good idea to have a check-up before you leave. Make sure that you take to Japan any medications that you might need as well as knowing the generic name of the drug. No immunizations or health certificates are necessary for Japan. Food is almost always safe to eat and you can drink tap water throughout Japan.

Travel Insurance

We highly recommends that all our customers take out a good travel insurance policy to protect you from theft, property loss or health problems. Due to the high cost of hospital treatment in Japan, you will want to make sure that you and your family are covered before you arrive.

Medical Kit

A small medical kit can save you the problem of running around a busy Japanese city or town and looking for items that are a lot easier to find at home. Things you might consider including in your kit are: band-aids, bandages, paracetamol, Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Antihistamines, Antacid, Antiseptic, Calamine lotion, a small set of scissors, lip balm and sunscreen.

Medical Assistance and Emergencies

Make sure that you have the Japan Contact details for your Travel Insurance with you at all times. If you need emergency medical assistance you might need to provide them to a doctor that is treating you. We also offer a help line which you can call in the case of emergency, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Call Japan Office +81 80 4667 7267 (English).
