Every experience with the national health care system has blown me away...

I have only lived in Japan for 4 years, but every experience with the national health system has blown me away. So many great interactions. I had some chronic ear pain, so I just looked up the nearest private specialist in my area, walked into his small practice without calling ahead, and was seen within 15 minutes. Total cost was less than $30. Another time I had a urinalysis and time discussing results with the doctor, no drugs needed, so just: $2 TWO DOLLARS.
