JHI is working with EST Doc, a hospital search web service.
They have rich information of English friendly dentists and clinics. Information is simple and easy to navigate.
We can help with inquiry and appointments as many clinics have Japanese only reception staff. Contact us and we will coordinate your visit.
New Year Holidays are coming up. Be noted that many of Japanese hospitals and clinics are closed typically from December 29th to January 4th (could be up to the 6th).
It will be very difficult to find a hospital during this time. Our general operation is closed from December 29th to January 4th but emails are checked every day. If you have questions or need help you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note some fees may be charged during holidays.
We are now working with an obgyn clinic that provides an online consultation in English and prescribes oral contraceptive pills. You do not have to travel to the clinic in person, simply have a consultation online and they will post-mail the pills anywhere in Japan. This will be a very convenient option for people living outside big cities.
Feel free to contact us for arrangement.

We have a contract with a lab and various home testing kits are available to ship. Please see the link below for details.
Some areas in Japan do not have English-friendly clinics for testing purposes so it has been really difficult to provide information where to get tested. We hope providing home testing kits can help.
