If you need to see a doctor due to illness or injury, you are advised to visit a hospital or clinic. There are general hospitals, specialized clinics and private clinics in Japan. Where you would go depends on the nature of your illness or injury. When choosing a hospital/clinic, it is a good idea to ask a Japanese person who has lived in the neighborhood for a long time.
Besides the basic room rental, students pay a separate bill for electricity, water and gas depending on individual consumption. Dedicated meters record this consumption on a monthly basis. Based on these records, the manager of the International House issues the bills and students pay for these bills directly to the manager.
