After three years of being in Japan, I’m no longer only in love with Japan. I love Japan!

Last night I got scared as I experienced a cold flush and lower abdominal pain on the right side.

I managed to go to local hospital in between my meetings today.

I’ve gotten the best health check of my life, with a doctor of 30+ year experience, all possible checks with ct scan, ultrasound (I’m not pregnant they confirmed) and influenza check for the first time.

I’ve had 6 people working on my case, total professionals, they made sure I understood everything, including by one nurse translating for me…

The statistics they produced, pictures and diagnostics, so great! So clear. So easy to understand. All equipment working, world-class, seems latest technology.

All this by coming un-appointed to the hospital (walk in). I waited for less than 10 minutes. No fancy hospital. Usual Tokyo hospital (Minato-ku).

I paid about 100 dollars.

Once someone experiences that… I think it’s natural to feel the love to this society and it’s institutions.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
