  • International patients traveling from overseas are not allowed to be admitted to the hospital without the intermediation of EAJ unless there are special circumstances. Please contact us by email before you come to the hospital.
  • Lack of explanation or misunderstandings due to the deference of language may cause serious medical accident. We introduce a medical interpreter and ask you to come to this hospital with him/her in order to communicate correctly. In such case, patients will bear approximately 25,000yen for once (up to 4hours) to hire him/her. Please be sure to come with an interpreter.
    When you don’t agree with arranging a medical interpreter, please come with someone who can communicate in Japanese. In this case we will not be able to bear the responsibility of any damage caused by improper interpreting and so on unfortunately.
