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".
