Japan Travel Insurance

Japan Travel Insurance

Japan Travel Insurance is highly recommended to anyone traveling to Japan, either for business meetings or tourism.

Japan is also called Nippon and the Land of the Rising Sun. Japan is an expensive country to visit, but it has a lot to offer in the way of modern amenities, as well as a glorious past.

Health care in Japan is excellent. Health care costs in Japan are not as high as in the United States, but they are still quite high, comparable to Canada or Australia.

Japan has a nationalized health care system for its residents, so most doctors and hospitals are used to dealing with the government to treat citizens. However, this does not include foreigners. Many doctors and hospitals are simply not used to treating foreigners and are not sure how they will get paid if they treat them. There have been many cases where tourists to Japan were refused treatment for this reason.

Therefore, it is critical to carry adequate travel insurance in case you get sick or injured unexpectedly while visiting Japan; this way, doctors and hospitals can be assured that they will be paid.

Please note that without proper travel insurance, you might be turned away from treatment, even in life-threatening medical conditions. Simply having proof of travel insurance is enough to overcome the reluctance to treat patients.

Japan is one of the safest places in the world to visit, as the crime rate is low. Chances of theft are very minimal, but they are possible.

Before visiting Japan, please visit your health care provider to make sure that you have appropriate vaccines, even though Japan does not have many endemic diseases.

Japan does have many natural disasters, though, including earthquakes, typhoons, volcanic eruptions and landslides. Therefore, you should be careful of where you visit in Japan. Additionally, due to multiple nuclear issues, you should avoid travel to affected areas.

Many people do not realize that Japan has some of the best ski resorts in the world. However, make sure that your travel insurance covers skiing before doing so. Many times, standard travel insurance does not provide coverage for injuries sustained during skiing, and you will have to purchase optional coverage for it.

Of course, traveling by Japan's bullet train, called Shinkansen, can be a lifetime experience for many. The train travels around 300 kilometers per hour and covers the distance from Tokyo to Osaka in about three hours; it is the busiest high-speed rail route in the world.
