Information for overseas course participants

Shibuya scramble crossing

Is it your first time to visit Japan? A warm welcome awaits you. I'm sure you have many questions about your visit. here is some helpful information about accomodation, food and other matters.

First of all, Japan is a cash-based society, so we advise you to bring enough cash for the first few days of your trip. For example 30,000 yen would be enough to cover your transport from the airport to the city and your food, plus any other things you wish to buy while you are here.

Generally it is a very safe country so it is okay to carry cash on you. Tipping is not necessary in Japan.

For your acomodation

I recomend using the following site to compare different prices and levels of luxury.

The closest hotel to this clinic is "Hotel Meldia Ogikubo". This type of hotel is called a "Business hotel" in Japan which means it is not luxurious but is good quality and value. So it is used by people visiting on business rather than for holidays.

For free advice and helpful service, please contact the tourist information center in Tokyo. The website is in Japanese, but don't worry, the staff all speak English.

For food


Japanese food is famous for its quality and taste. There are many new foods you will enjoy discovering. Many restaurants do NOT speak English and do NOT have English menus, but please just be brave and enjoy the experience!!

There are many restaurants and 24-hour convenience stores around the clinic. You can buy a wide range of food and drinks in convenience stores. We call them "Konbini".

For travel from airport to here.

Airport Limsin bus

The easiest way to access Tokyo from the airport is by Limsin bus.

If you want to take a taxi from the street, you need one with a red light, this means it's available to stop for you. An orange light means NOT in service. You do not need to pay a tip to the driver. And again cash is advisable, although more and more taxis are now accepting electronic payment options.

If you plan to travel by public transport while staying in Tokyo, a "Suica card" is highly recommended. You can get this handy plastic card from both JR and subway stations. You can use it not only for public transport but also in many shops, for example paying for food in supermarkets. It will save you a lot of time and stress when you use "Suica"!

If you are lost, ask for directions at the police box, known as "Koban". You can find a police box on all the main roads.

For fun and sightseeing

Please enjoy the famous "Hato bus" tour aroud Tokyo.
