Appointment-base or walk-in???

If you set up your appointment

Many Japanese hospitals and clinics utilize appointment-only policy to minimize the patients’ waiting time and regulate the number of the patients.
Appointment slots are usually set up in 10-30 minute frames.4

Remember that promptness is highly emphasized in Japan more than other countries.
Try to arrive to your hospital on time.

If you are going to be late for more only 5 minutes for whatever reason, you should call and let them know that you are arriving a bit late.

In some facilities with very strict time rules, they might not let you receive treatment if you come in late!

【要約】
日本では、受診するときに予約が必要な医療機関と、必要でない医療機関があります。歯科、心療内科、総合病院、不妊治療などの専門家などは予約が必要ですので、必ず事前に連絡をしてから病院に行ってください。通常、内科、眼科、耳鼻咽喉科、小児科、皮膚科、整形外科、産婦人科は予約が必要ないところが多いようです。
日本では、時間の正確さが求められます。到着が、予約時間よりも5分以上遅れそうな場合には、できるだけ早めに医療機関に電話をしてお知らせをするべきでしょう。予約時間通りに来院しないと受付をしてもらえない場合もあるので気をつけましょう。
