Living in a foreign culture where you are not familiar with the language will involve a lot of inconveniences and difficulties. This so-called "language barrier" may seem especially high when you need medical attention for your illness or injury. MIC Kanagawa's founding mission and goal is to "create a society where everyone can enjoy full access to medical services, regardless of their race, nationality or cultural background."
The Immigration Bureau has established the "Foreign Residents Information Center" to inform and advice foreign nationals. These centers are located at Regional Immigration bureaus and District Offices of Sendai, Tokyo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Osaka, Kobe, Hiroshima, and Fukuoka.
