Please take the following with you when you go to see a doctor:
● Health Insurance Certificate (without it you will be expected to pay the full cost)
● Cash (most medical institutions only accept cash payments and only in Japanese yen)
● Any medication that you are currently taking
● It may be useful to write down your address, telephone number and symptoms on a piece of paper.
Outpatient examination times vary depending on the hospital, but some are closed in the afternoons or on Saturdays. Most are closed on Sundays and public holidays. It is advisable to telephone the clinic beforehand to check if a doctor from the relevant medical department is on duty, their consultation times and if it is possible to make an appointment.
