There are several pharmacies nearby. The closest pharmacy is only two doors away. We realize that being unwell overseas is hard enough without having to work out how the pharmacy operates, so if you do need language support, we can help you at this point if needed as well.
For emergency illness, we stock several medicines, such as antibiotics, antiviral agents, painkillers, medicines for stomach ache, and can dispense these directly.
In a pharmacy, the time taken to prepare a prescription depends on the medication. The cost will also depend on the medication. Japan does not have a fixed prescription charge like the UK for example. Although card payments are increasingly accepted in Japan, cash is perhaps still the preferred method of payment.
