Emergency Medical Care

ID番号 N29437 更新日 平成29年4月11日

When you call 119 for medical care, the station will arrange for an ambulance if the situation requires it. Ambulances are free in Japan but you will have to pay for medical treatment. The ambulance will transport you to the nearest available emergency room that is suited to your condition.

 

What to bring:

Residence card (and/or passport)

Health insurance card

Cash

Information on any medications you are currently taking

Information on any allergies or illnesses you may have

 

Not all hospitals are open 24/7 in Japan. Usually there are only certain hospitals “on duty” during these times to accept non-emergency patients. You may check out a list of what hospitals are on duty during nights, weekends, and holidays by searching at this link. However, this service is currently only available in Japanese.

I can’t speak Japanese. What do I do?

If at all possible, please bring a Japanese speaker with you. We understand that may not be possible in every situation, so the Iwate International Association provides medical interpreter volunteers (called Multilingual Supporters, or 多言語サポーター tagengo sapootaa). Unfortunately, this is a volunteer system, so we cannot guarantee you will be able to get someone in an emergency. Please give a call to the Iwate International Association at 019-654-8900.

 

We have a few resources you can take along with you, such as questionnaires you can fill out to describe your symptoms. Some hospitals and clinics may have these as well.
