             Overseas Travel Insurance   September 6, 2018

Dear travelers to Japan:

It is recommended to take out overseas travel insurance.  Please check your insurance company for their travel insurance services.  Here are some reasons why this is strongly recommended.

  1. Overseas travel insurance makes you feel secure, even in emergencies, and you can enjoy your trip.

  2. Medical expenses can be very high in Japan. If the travel insurance you purchased offers sufficient coverage of treatment costs, you can receive treatment without concern.

  3. It is recommended to have overseas travel insurance with travel support for hospital referrals, medical interpretation, and cashless medical service.



International Association of Traffic and Safety Sciences has released a video to inform foreign visitors of the traffic rules in Japan. Please see the website below:
