About Medical tourism in Japan

About Medical tourism in Japan

In Japan, the initiative of Medical tourism has just begun, starting with the 2009 new national growth strategy.

Medical tourism means “traveling abroad for medical purposes”.
Traveling to receive medical treatment has existed since ancient times in Japan, such as Toji(Long stay treatment by Hot spring).

Currently, the purpose of medical tourism is roughly divided into three categories.
The difference depends on how much emphasis is placed on the elements of “medicine” and “tourism”.

在日本,从2009年新的国家增长战略开始,医疗旅游的计划才刚刚开始。
医疗旅游是指“出于医疗目的出国旅行”。日本自远古以来就存在旅行接受治疗的问题,例如Toji(温泉的长期治疗)。
当前,医疗旅游的目的大致分为三类。区别取决于对“医学”和“旅游”要素的重视程度。


1. The purpose of “treatment”

The first is that the specific purpose of treatment is higher than that of tourism.
Specifically, advanced medical care such as cancer treatment, heart disease surgery, and organ transplantation can be given.

1.“治疗”的目的
首先是治疗的具体目的高于旅游的目的。
具体地,可以给予诸如癌症治疗,心脏病手术和器官移植的高级医疗。


2. The purpose of “examination”
The second is aimed at “examination”, and the specific gravity of medical care and tourism is about the same.
Specifically, the new facility will receive a medical checkup and PET screening. Before and after that, it is common for customers to visit the historic sites, eat local cuisine, shop, and return home.

2.“考试”的目的
第二个针对“考试”,医疗和旅游业的比重大致相同。
具体来说,新工厂将接受医疗检查和PET筛查。在此之前和之后,客户通常会参观历史遗迹,品尝当地美食,购物并返回家中。


3. To improve beauty and wellness
The third is aimed at “beauty and wellness promotion”, which is more important for tourism than for medical treatment.
Specifically, it is a travel plan that uses local resources such as hot springs, beauty and spa, cosmetic surgery, forest therapy, marine therapy, rehabilitation, and local ingredients to go to resorts.

3.改善美丽和健康
第三个目标是“促进美容和健康”,这对旅游业比对医疗业更重要。
具体来说,这是一个旅行计划,利用温泉,美容和水疗,美容手术,森林疗法,海洋疗法,康复和当地食材等当地资源前往度假胜地。
