  • Health insurance in Japan

    Hi everyone,
    I am coming from Canada to Japan on a working/holiday visa. I plan to be there for about a year. Anyone know any good (cheap) places to get travel insurance. And for the Candian people reading this. Do you know if Canadian health care help pay for anything?

    From my experience living in the UK. (I am from Alberta) Generally you can get Canadian Health care to cover canadian costs for any proceedures you need but make sure you write to them and let them know you are out of the country or you could be without insurance all together.

    As my wife found out after being out of the country 3+ years she went back to Canada for a visit with two of our children and had to take one to the hospital. As there is not agreements between Canada and britain on health care she was stung for 350 dollars.
