English Medical Services in Nagoya

Getting sick is never a pleasant experience, so getting sick in a country where you can’t speak the language adds even more misery to the situation! This inspired me to put together a small list of Medical Service providers that are English friendly in Nagoya.

Need to knows: Always have your Residence card and Health Insurance card. As with the Restaurants and Cafes I personally recommend carrying cash with you.
