First national health insurance card

First national health insurance card

Now that I have a one year visa for cultural activities (thank you, in-laws), the Japanese government has issued me an Alien Registration Card and enrolled me in the national health insurance program. Yipeee! For about $100 per year, I now have access to health care in Japan. My very first national health insurance. Thank you, Nihon!

It’s been a week of getting organized. I also got my bike re-assembled and registered, bought a bike helmet, and added a kick-stand. I am ready to roll.
