On average, for the first consultation, bring 5,000-10,000 yen if you have a Japanese Health Insurance. That should cover most first consultation, basic medical tests and medication fee.
If you do not have a Japanese Health Insurance, I would recommend you to bring 20,000 yen for the first consultation. Ask the clinic receptionist for the estimation of your follow up consultations, usually not as expensive as the first one.
It is difficult to make an estimation, but I would bring about 10,000-15,000 yen for the first consultation with Japanese Health Insurance.
If you have no insurance, bring 20,000 to 50,000 yen. Hospital costs tend to be more expansive than clinics. Same as clinics, the follow-up fees are usually not as expensive as the first one.
Most Japanese clinics do not accept a credit card. Many hospitals do.
Please note the fee varies depending on your medical tests, medications or others. If you wish to confirm your estimation of costs, contact us and we can make an enquiry to the clinic/hospital you are planning to visit.
