Dear travelers to Japan:

It is recommended that you purchase overseas travel insurance

  • Overseas travel insurance can give you a feeling of security, even in emergencies, so you can better enjoy your trip.
  • Medical expenses can be very high in Japan. If you have purchashed travel insurance which offers sufficient coverage of the costs, you can receive treatments without concern.
  • It is recommended that you purchase overseas travel insurance with travel support for hospital referrals, medical interpretation, and cashless medical service. (We recommend that you check your insurance details before traveling.  For example, perinatal medical care is not covered by travel insurance and can be expensive.)
