Practical Matters


It is essential to take out travel insurance in your home country before coming to Japan.

In addition it is compulsory to join Japan’s national health insurance.
The amount of the premium you must pay varies by city or ward; it is, however, usually about 1,500 yen per month.

Furthermore, taking out optional vehicle liability insurance is recommended, in case of accidents. More information will be provided at the general orientation. Please consider taking out this insurance.
