Healthcare in Japan is quite good. In many aspects, it is better than American healthcare. The Japanese do have universal healthcare. The healthcare experience in Japan is different from the west in that after the diagnosis, the entire family will sit with the doctor and patient and discuss the health of the patient and what recommendations the doctor has. Family members can discuss their concerns with the doctor. The doctors are quite frank and open. It is more family oriented than western healthcare.
One thing you do see at Japanese clinics is acupuncture. Acupuncture is considered a medical practice and it is part of Japanese patient treatment.
