Emergency medical care in Japan – Useful Information

Emergency medical care in Japan

It is not always easy to find after-hours emergency medical care in Japan. The cities and towns across the country do designate certain hospitals for emergency care.  When in doubt check with your local city or ward office.

HealthyTokyo has prepared a list of resources for you to find some of the major services across the country that can assist in an emergency.

It is best to call ahead if you can, but recognize that you might not be connected with someone who can speak English. If you are uncertain how to get to the appropriate hospital, please jump in a taxi or call a friend to assist you.
