Take Advantage of the "Osaka Medical Institution Search System"

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.
