My next trip will be to Japan - Osaka/Kyoto/Kobe. Went to collect some maps and brochures from the Japan Tourism Board Singapore. They proved to be so useful, so easy to understand and I dont have to plan much except for the transport details.
Now starting to pack my bags but recently had some health problems with my eyes, hope nothng serious happen that forced me to cancel my trip. Need to really go slow on my travel, think I had to adjust some itinerary to suit my health problems. Not easy to grow old but luckily I bought my pre illness travel insurance from NTUC so that in case my health gives me problem while travelling, I can be at ease seeking medical help at the clinic in Japan. I googled and found that there's a Singapore Medical Group in Osaka Station. So I wont have problem with the language problem in case I need to see the doctor there. Always good to have on hand the address and telephone number of english speaking medical institution when going to a different country where English is not their main langauage. Incase you are curious to know the name of the clinic. It is Raffles Medical Osaka Branch. Located in: Herbis Osaka Address: Japan, 〒530-0001 Osaka Prefecture, Osaka, Kita Ward, Umeda, 2 Chome−５−２５ Hours: Open today · 8:30AM–1PM, 2–6PM Phone: +81 6-6345-8145 Also very important to register with my Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs each time I travelled in case of emergency and help.
