2. Other expenses

Other expenses should be prepared as necessary cost for textbooks, train fare, meals, medicines, etc.

3. Insurance

No insurance is provided by Sophia University or the Japanese government for short-term visitors to Japan.
We strongly recommend that students purchase travel insurance through their home institution or an insurance company prior to leaving for Japan so that their medical expenses will be covered on the way to/from Japan and while in Japan. Participants are required to send a copy of their insurance card and insurance policy to the office via e-mail.
