Easy to spot, easy to check. Not entirely true. Some hospitals and clinics are contracted with some US health insurance companies to accept direct payment.
And, there are quite a few in Japan. I would imagine that other health insurance companies might also have similar programs. It pays to check before buying insurance just for your trip.
Being a signatory not necessary being compliant. For implementation Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, you can check Julian Adame that reported missing last year.
His friends and families were looking for him. Need them sometimes just to find out that he was in detention.
Thing that should be informed in the first place. It really depend on the law enforcement, in some cases you really need to demand your right, right to reach for lawyer and your consular.

Information Pack for British Prisoners in Japan After being arrested — the first 72 hours and beyond. That's correct but usually being ordinary foreigner alone can easily attract them and of course they common things they will say is because you look suspicious.
They just can't explain more when being asked what part of being suspicious. No you can meet lawyer way sooner than that but really need to be careful when stating your demand and filling form.
I think at times they've just been instructed to go out and find a set quota of individuals to justify their existence.
Note - however, although this is aimed at "After being sentenced" And well worth the time doing so, for self-education at least.
I slightly disagree with your "always obey" rule.. It would have been better to have a lawyer or someone familiar with the criminal law process in Japan write this article, the advice is all very obvious and it tells the reader nothing useful about what to do if they are actually detained.
Yes you do, you always have a right to a lawyer. Most 1st world foreign countries I know of the fines are steep and most of the time if they have to go they try and do it out of site.
Best thing to do is just keep telling them you don't speak Japanese and that you don't understand. Most police officers don't speak English and will easily give up and leave you alone if you aren't really doing anything wrong.
Two houses in my Tokyo neighborhood on the main road leading to the station have signs on their property saying "this is not a toilet.
When I first came to Japan and stayed at accommodation along a big road in Osaka, the local the taxi drivers would routinely stop to urinate, unashamedly, on the boulevard.
I was well-traveled, but had never seen people make zero attempt to conceal themselves while in an urban place. The other foreign guests were also amused and we used to gather around the window for laughs.
I see less of it nowadays, but it will always be something I associate with Japan. Been stopped 4 times in 25 years. Never carry my gaijin card either.
The last time was 3 months ago when the cop,bored as Said I'd forgotten it. I don't use a wallet. He insisted on seeing my card, so decided to follow me for the deliberate,slow ride to my place where in my school window could see the sign that I'm an English teacher,whilst I was getting the card.
He looked humbled as I went back into my place without a word. Stopped 3 times in 15 years- all for English practice Easy stuff- Be as genki as possible Okusama wa nihonjin Aka chan des I know its grammatically wrong- doesn't matter Excited wall of English They usually smile and just give up Once he asked for my gaijin card as well I said "sure but you also have to show too" with a big smile We each showed and then talked about his home town..
I've been in Tokyo for 9 years and have been stopped literally 5 times at my station within the past 4 years of living in my current neighborhood. It never happened to me at my prior station.
The last few times, I actually questioned the officers about the law and refused to present ID after learning of this However, I must admit that each time that I got away with not showing ID, it was more stressful than just showing my ID and being on my way.
The most recent incident was last month while I was out with my toddler! That was a first, and it made me realize it's just not worth the trouble anymore if I have nothing to hide.
I was able to argue a bit and be on my way without showing my ID, but next time I'm just taking the easy route You never know what kind of cop you're dealing with, and nobody wants their pride hurt.
They're courteous and polite each time, so I do appreciate that, but it's an embarrassing scene to be stopped and questioned by them. I figure now, why make that scene last longer than it needs to?
About carrying your ID, its important to remember that the reason police often stop and ask foreigners for them is that police are incentivized to catch infractions since it firms part of their job evaluation.
Catching foreigners without their ID is one of the easiest and safest infractions for them to enforce, so in order to increase their evaluation they try to catch as many of those as they can.
I was able to argue a bit and be on my way without showing my ID, but next time I'm just taking the easy route..
Now we know that you are exercising your right and they respect their due process. As you may experienced, heard or read from debito. At least by doing so they will refrain unnecessary check of your ID in the future since they are aware you know your right and you are living legally near that station.
Chiba which includes Narita, has no duty lawyers. The court will appoint you one if required. The thing is, as a foreigner, sometimes trouble finds you.
Trouble will arise on crowded trains after an extra long day at work, long commutes etc and you and the offender take a trip to the police box. Avoid fighting.
That just means you have a very superficial understanding of Japan because you are not immersed in daily like company life and work.
Easy to say sweet things on the other side of the fence. Couldn't agree more, Sir. While some foreigners are mature and try to comply with the Japanese society, most gaijin are extremely arrogant, petulant, and think they are doing Japan a favor by staying in the country.
No wonder most Japanese prefer not to associate much with that kind of gaijin. Most Japanese are not fluent in any foreign language, so no surprise there.
If you travel to China, you will see mothers placing their toddlers inside public sinks in theory to be used for washing hands or face so that they can urinate or even defecate inside.
Also, urinating in public places happens in the said country, but also I've seen it in India, South America, and of course Africa.
Not trying to defend the Japanese who do that, since it is gross, but it happens almost everywhere. I'd say it's been the opposite for years.
Not only in USA, but also in Europe, it seems like whites have to apologize and feel guilty for being so. The so-called "positive discrimination".
Western countries are going nuts, seriously It is possible for almost anyone to make a mistake that could get you the attention of the police.
Just try to cooperate and don't do anything that will wind up getting you into even more trouble. By the way, my nephew is just now on his way to becoming a policeman in Tokyo.
He is a good young man - please don't give him any trouble Most of what people here are saying is correct about the J police, that is they are for the most part, are pretty decent.
Its my observation that the Japanese populace are a kind of police themselves, that is they deal with issues and the police are only there when it becomes to complex.
They would rather not get involved in disputes etc. The issue arises when an incident occurs, and you will encounter issues, if you stay in Japan long enough.
The gaijin is usually not given the presumption of innocence and is considered guilty by default, even with overwhelming evidence that your not. Its assumed that you dont understand the Japanese inside game.
In such cases, IMO, its best to hand it off to some one close to you who is Japanese. This is just how Japan works; a more senior Japanese or spouse will come and take charge, scold if you did wrong, something like this, and your now To go out it alone, and hope for the best, thats scary in Japan, and not recommended.
True, J cops rarely profile and dont bother gaijin, but its when you have somebody target you for their hate or just in the wrong place at the wrong time, etc.
Be advised. Also, if you see a Japanese doing a crime, doesnt mean you can do it. I see kids spraying graffiti, old men peeing in the park in front of kids, shoplifting, many things, almost weekly.
Most Japanese avoid confrontation with each other. Doesnt mean they wont confront you. And I never confront anyone doing a crime either.
That invites even more trouble. Its up to you, but thats just me. I only really have one incident that could be relevant to this - I was punched in the face by a drunk guy on the train.
Useful article. Laws tend to be slightly different country to country, but as the article says, the main point is to carry your passport, keep your clothes on, do not urinate in public, and do not steal.
As for raising one's voice to law enforcement officers, I have never understood why some people think that that is a good idea.
Even if the officer behaves inappropriately, which can happen, best to keep calm and let the situation deescalate.
Not sure what most are talking about with the "been in Japan for 20 years and only been asked for ID once" but I get stopped by the police 2 or 3 times a month on my bicycle.
If you are doing anything that they think they need to "teach" you about the rules of being Japanese, they will. They will stop you and waste 30 minutes or more depending on what they want to say to you.
If you are detained, you are gone for hours and sometimes they will not let you go unless they release you to another Japanese person that knows you.
Very racist if you ask me. Thats exactly what I was talking about, Best to know at least one Japanese person who has your corner.
And just because some other gaijin says "I have never experienced racism, or police, or this or that There are many situations thats why they call it situational ethics where the law and enforcement are applied differently in Japan.
Its kind of like Every gaijin I have met, has had an experience either parallel to mine, or in some cases, much worse. There are some precautions, that I and others have posted, you should know.
Ignore at your own risk. Own your experiences and dont blame yourself, but dont be ignorant of your surroundings. I was punched in the face by a drunk guy on the train.
The police never once treated it like it was anything other than the other guy who was at fault. Beside ID also riding bicycle as foreigner can be easily end up as a target.
Of course so far there is no data that can show correlation between bicycle theft and foreigners. What usually happened, foreigners just not get used to bicycle registration system since not so many countries have that system.
So lot of foreigners just not taking full details about registration when they get their bicycle from person before them or from buying online even bicycle that they use is perfectly legal.
Firstly, unless the law has changed recently, it is 43 days you can be held without charge. Amnesty International often have their sights on Japan.
Secondly, in my nearly two decades in Japan, mainly in Osaka and Kobe, foreigners can be, and often will be charged in cases Japanese would be let off: foreign crime or even the possiblity of a crime unproven is frequently treated far more sternly, in fact, borderline criminally by the police themselves.
Thirdly, I have had to file complaints against the police twice in my time here for harrassment: no crime committed.
Fourthly, the only time I have ever had real trouble with the police, no arrest nor conviction, I was interrogated for 6 hours, and given an awful interpretor who was literally Elementary level English - in downtown Kobe, not the countryside.
The whole process led to a nine month wait to see a prosecutor who literally threw the case out within minutes. Summary of Machi-Bugyo Edo machi-bugyo, jisha-bugyo in charge of temples and shrines , and kanjo bugyo in charge of finance were generically called san three bugyo.
The members in this post, together with those in the other two bugyo posts were also members of Hyojosho the conference chamber , and were also concerned with affairs in the bakufu government.
The number of officers in this post was basically two. In the early Edo period, daimyo were appointed this post, and later hatamoto direct retainers of the bakufu.
A machi-bugyo officer went to the Edo castle in the morning, reporting to Roju members or holding meetings, and in the afternoon, made decisions and held trials, working until late night.
The work in the post was known to be hard, and the rate of death while in office was conspicuous. Machi-Bugyo-Sho office Until when the bakufu built machi-bugyo-sho offices, the person appointed a machi-bugyo officer used his residence as the office, executing his job by providing a court called shirasu: literally, a white sand area in the premise.
Its territory of control was limited to machikata the town area of Edo, and its authority did not cover samurai residences, shrines and temples that occupied more than a half of Edo.
However, the control of the town areas in front of the shrines and the temples was transferred to the machi-bugyo. In , the Edo area was officially specified on a map with a red line called shu-biki , and at the same time, the area to be controlled by the machi-bugyo was shown with a black line called sumi-biki.
The area roughly corresponds to that of 15 wards of Tokyo, or the area of Tokyo City when the city system started. The term of machi-bugyo-sho came from the name of the governmental post, therefore, the office was actually called go-bansho a police station or o-yakusho a government office by townspeople.
The Monthly Rotation System As the term of kita-machi-bugyo -sho and minami-machi-bugyo -sho were often used, two Edo-machi-bugyo-sho offices were placed except for a certain period.
However, this did not mean that the control territory was divided between the two offices. The job was actually conducted in a monthly rotation system however, for each of the doshin officers who walked around watching town situations, jishinban [the town-watching places operated by townspeople themselves] to patrol were specified, and in that sense, a control territory existed naturally.
However, the jishinban places allotted to a doshin officer were scattered all over the Edo city area, and were not concentrated in an area, like the XX direction in the present police.
This monthly rotation system indicated that civil suits were accepted by the kita north office or by the minami south office alternatively, and ordinary jobs of the office except for the acceptance of civil suits including criminal suits whose examinations were underway were conducted naturally.
In addition, the bugyo-sho office being its off duty turn handled unfinished law suits that were accepted by the office in its on duty turn.
The term of kita and minami were used for identifying a location where the bugyo-sho office was placed, and were not used officiallyOfficially, each of them was called "machi-bugyo-sho office" uniformly.
Therefore, when a bugyo-sho office moved and the relationship between the bugyo-sho office locations changed consequently, the name of the bugyo-sho office that had not moved was also changed.
In when a residence of a bugyo officer moved to an area within the gate of Sukiya-bashi Bridge on the southernmost side from an area within the gate of Tokiwa-bashi Bridge, the new residence became to be called the minami-bugyo-sho office due to its location.
Then, the former minami-bugyo-sho office located in an area inside Kajiya-bashi Bridge became to be called the naka middle -bugyo-sho office, and the former naka-bugyo-sho office located in an area inside Gofuku-bashi Bridge became to be called the kita-bugyo-sho office.
Yoriki a governmental post in the Edo bakufu Yoriki was a typical governmental post in the Edo bakufu. In the Edo bakufu, yoriki were posted together with doshin officers under yoriki to assist their senior officers.
In particular, machi-kata yoriki under machi-bugyo the post in charge of townspeople's affairs or officers in the post was famous, assisted machi-bugyo, and played the functions of administration, judicature, and police.
In addition to ordinary yoriki who belonged to Bugyo-sho, there were also uchiyori who were private retainers of machi-bugyo. It could be considered that a yoriki was the head of a police station.
Yoriki was allowed to ride on a horse, and top-class yoriki officers earned a two hundred and several tens of rice crop, surpassing lower-class Hatamoto direct retainers of the bakufu.
However, yoriki were not allowed to have audience with Shogun nor to enter the Edo castle. For a yoriki officer, a residence with around tubo approximately 3.
Doshin patrol officer The term "doshin" refers to one of the low-level officials of the Edo bakufu Japanese feudal government headed by a shogun.
They served in a public office to conduct general affairs and police work as a subordinate of police sergeant under the control of magistrates, Kyoto deputies, castle keepers, captains of the great guards, head castle guards and others.
Also, a lot of domains officially named ashigaru-level soldier common foot soldier under the direct control of the domain as doshin.
Well-known doshin officials are Machikata-doshin, who handled justice, administration, and police affairs in Edo under the town magistrate, and Sanmawari-doshin, who conducted patrols of the town.
Machikata and Mawarikata-doshins as well as doshin under the investigation division for arson and organized robbery often used their private pawns called okappiki or meakashi as an investigation assistant and information source.
In the light of the above, okappiki and meakashi were only private servants of a doshin, not proper members of the town magistrate's office, although they are sometimes regarded as present-day police officers.
Rather, it can be said that doshin corresponds to a modern patrol police officer. So even if it is hard to do or would take a long time I am willing to put forth the time and effort.
So is it possible? And if so about how difficult would it be? Joined 18 Jan Messages 3, Reaction score As epigene mentioned, you must be a Japanese national to be come a police officer in Japan.

Does this sound right? Most types of working visas also require you to have a prospective employer as a sponsor. Residence permission is usually granted in periods of one or three years and is extendable.
Emoni said:. Last edited: 26 Jan In case of the latter, once you pass the exam, you'll have to go to police school. Not that I want to discourage you, but to take the above exam, you'll need to be proficient in Japanese language so that you can understand the webpage above quoted Glenski Just me.
Joined 20 Aug Messages 4, Reaction score You say you will do anything it takes "I have a few long years to train before moving to japan" , yet your first post says you want to move here in only 12 months.
Ramen and shogi are nice, but if you want to be a police officer something you have not explained why , it's going to take more than an interest in hobbies and food to convince immigration.
I don't mean to be dismissive, BUT You want to become a police officer in Japan for some unexplained reason, yet you are so ridiculously far from achieving ANY of the minimum requirements for the job.
Are you a Japan national? No Did you go through The Japanese education system? No Do you even speak, read or write Japanese?
No Do you meet any of the minimum requirements for even getting a visa to live in Japan, let alone citizenship?! No The people above are being a little too kind, perhaps out of fear of being admonished.
At this point, you might as well be planning for your next life. They are responsible for such matters as forest preservation, narcotics control, fishery inspection, and enforcement of regulations on maritime, labor, and mine safety.
The largest and most important of these ministry-supervised public safety agencies is the Japan Coast Guard , an external agency of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism that deals with crime in coastal waters and maintains facilities for safeguarding navigation.
The agency operates a fleet of patrol and rescue craft in addition to a few aircraft used primarily for anti-smuggling patrols and rescue activities.
In there were 2, incidents in and on the waters. In those incidents, 1, people drowned or were lost and 1, people were rescued. They handle national security matters both inside and outside the country.
Their activities are not generally known to the public. The Firearm and Sword Possession Control Law strictly regulates the civilian ownership of guns , swords and other weaponry , in accordance with a Japanese law which states: "No person shall possess a firearm or firearms or a sword or swords" and there are few exceptions.
Japan has strict regulations on medical and recreational drugs. Importing or using any type of narcotics is illegal and there is generally no leniency.
For example the possession of cannabis has a jail sentence of up to five years for the first offense. There are no exceptions for celebrities; if a celebrity is caught then their products are removed from stores and it could bring an end to their career.
Authorities can detain a suspect for up to three weeks without charges. Solitary confinement is common and you only get access to a lawyer.
