It is important that before planning your trip to Japan, consider all the medications you need to take with you, in case you have any medical condition or need to take a certain medication.

For this, it is necessary that you go to a trusted doctor so they can give you a certificate that you certainly need these medicines, so Japanese customs do not confiscate your medications, and if you need to get more of these and are not available in Japan, you can import them.
