During your trip to Japan, unfamiliar food and climate could bring about a stomachache or cold, but generally speaking there's always a possibility of suddenly falling sick. This article will introduce two easily accessible doctor's offices with treatment available in English, as well as a convenient search engine website.
"Osaka Namba Clinic" Has Both a Convenient Location and Treatment in a Wide Variety of Specialties
Osaka Namba Clinic is located on the 9th floor of the Namba SkyO shopping complex connected to Nankai Namba Station. It is part of the Southern Tohoku Hospital Group, a network of medical and welfare organizations based in Tokyo, Kanagawa Prefecture, and the Tohoku region with a motto of "patient-centered healthcare". You can be seen by a doctor without an appointment, and the clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. There are doctors available for a wide variety of medical specialties, including internal medicine, orthopedics, gastrointestinal medicine, cardiovascular medicine, neurology, and gynecology, as well as the associated medical equipment for any type of exam.

Take Advantage of the "Osaka Medical Institution Search System"
With the Osaka Medical Institution Search System, developed by Osaka City, you can select your desired language (English, Chinese, Korean, etc.), location, medical specialty, and more, then just press the search button to find suitable hospitals and clinics. However, the website is only available in Japanese, so it will be easiest to ask one of the employees on staff at your lodging or at a tourist information center to help you search.
※The medical institutions listed in this article or on the website may not always have multilingual staff available, so be sure to inquire via telephone in advance.
