Tokyo is the biggest metropolitan area in the world and is the busiest hub in Japan. The city’s pop culture manifests itself everywhere makes it a city unlike any other and offers a unique travel experience. If that along with the great food, luxury hotels and ancient shrines are not enough of a reason to visit Tokyo, there is now an added dimension of medical tourism to the city. 

Hospitals and clinics here have doctors and physicians who are highly specialized in several medical treatments including cancer treatment (oncology) and regenerative medicine, which involves the repair and replacement of damaged or diseased tissues and organs. Japan enjoys the advantage of being easily accessible to countries in the Western hemisphere, and hence is a convenient medical tourism destination. There are a number of international medical clinics and hospitals that are very tourist friendly and offer high quality and specialized treatment options.
