Japan is one of the most well developed countries of the world and is considered a foremost leader in technology and closely related fields. Tokyo is the capital of Japan and is also the center of educational, industrial, cultural and financial activities in Japan. The city is provided with many outstanding hospitals staffed by eminent doctors, containing ultra modern technologies and medical equipment, and the latest treatments and services. Since the medical costs are a bit high in Japan, tourists are well advised to take out travel health insurance.
