Our 6 month Medical placements in Japan are a fantastic opportunity to experience work in a busy hospital environment, while living in one of the world’s most culturally fascinating countries. Our placements provide the opportunity for the majority of our Medical volunteers to work in Red Cross hospitals. Sample the world of medicine around the country and witness the daily inner-workings of a hospital – from nursing to brain surgery!


The more Japanese you know, the more responsible the tasks you may be given. The role of a medical volunteer in Japan is exciting and varied and offers the volunteer a real insight into both medical care and Japanese culture.
