Medical Care

In non-emergency situations, contact your local embassy for recommendations. The International Clinic, 1-5-9 Azabudai, Minato-ku, 81-3-3582-2646 accepts walk-in patients. Drugstores, or kusuri-ya are located throughout the city. One, The American Pharmacy at the Hibiya Park Building, 1-8-1 Yurakucho, Chiyoda-ku, 81-3-3271-4034, stocks products from the United States and fills U.S. prescriptions. It’s open Mon – Sat, 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Sun and holidays, 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. Note that as with most stores in town, pharmacies close early. For emergencies, dial 119 for ambulances or 110 for police — the person answering will most likely not speak English or other languages, be as clear and precise as possible. Hotel concierges can also assist in finding a hospital if necessary.
