US students studying abroad in Japan

Studying in Japan, the 'Land of the Rising Sun' is an unique cultural and educational experience. Despite the language barrier, it is enriching for international students given the high quality of academics and the innovative spirit of its economy. Japan has been one of the most dynamic economies of the past few decades and despite its aging population will continue to be a significant player in the coming years.

While embarking on a study abroad program in Japan, it is important for US students to buy proper international student medical insurance. Most US health insurance plans provide limited coverage outside US borders and given the cost of healthcare in Japan, it is important to be adequately insured with student medical insurance.
