With a wide variety of treatments available at all major hospitals in the Tokyo metropolitan area, you are able to choose a facility located nearest to you. Smaller clinics will be able to treat your common ailments such as colds and flu or assist with vaccinations when travelling abroad. You can use either your Japanese Medical Insurance provided by your local Ward office or company so please ask which insurance is applicable when making an appointment. Appointments are necessary at all major hospitals and most clinics have a walk-in policy but you may need to wait to be seen by a doctor.
Specialized clinics also offer treatment for cosmetic dentistry and laser treatments or dermatology for skin as well as plastic surgery. When using a specialized clinic, you will not be able to use your health insurance if the procedure is elective.
