About Japan

Japan is special in its own way; the culture, food, people, as well as the technology are envied by the world over. With old Japan, comes the ancient traditions in form of a geisha performance, onsen (hot spring) visit in the mountains, tea ceremony or shrine visit. In contrast, there is the modern Japan, full of smart systems and electronics, colorful advertisements and displays and ultra-modern architecture. In recent years, Japan has become one of the top destinations in the world for oncology treatments and sees many tens of thousands of medical tourists each year. Many of these travel from within the region, including China and Korea, but they are unable to compete with the SE Asian nations with prices. Private hospitals are located across the country, with particular focus in the major cities like Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. 25 of these facilities are JCI-accredited, with many offering Ophthalmology procedures.
