Proper travel insurance will be useful to pay medical bills for any unexpected medical emergency.

US tourists visiting Japan

Japan is the most developed economy in Asia and is currently the third largest global economy after the US and China. It is a densely populated island nation having in Tokyo Bay the largest urban center in the world. Tokyo is famous for its skyline, cherry blossoms, shopping arcades and pop culture. Beyond Tokyo, Japan has a very rich cultural history and several imperial palaces and thousands of temples. The historic city of Kyoto is a must see to get an insight to Japanese culture. The country also has several national parks and the beautiful Mount Fuji. It has modern technological marvels such as the Shinkansen bullet trains which connects the island of Kyushu with Okinawa's subtropical beaches.

Thanks to all these famous attracts, Japan has about 25 million international tourists annually. While the largest source of tourists are from China, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong, over a million tourists are from the United States.
While it is exciting to visit Japan, international tourists should make sure that they have good international travel insurance. US travellers should be aware that US domestic health insurance plans do not extend their coverage outside US borders. It is therefore prudent to buy adequate travel medical insurance while travelling overseas.
